The Sample Foundation, Inc., was incorporated on November 1, 1954, in Collier County, Florida, as a tax-exempt private foundation as defined in Section 509(a) of the Internal Revenue Code.

The Sample Foundation was established by John Glen Sample and Helen S. Sample to promote broad philanthropic objectives through grants and investments in the areas of health, social welfare, and services to the disadvantaged.

With the deaths of the founders, the principal office of the Foundation was relocated in 1977 to Billings, Montana, where it continues to operate under the direction of members of the Sample family.

Generally, grants are limited to the areas within the state of Montana and Collier County, Florida.


Joseph S. Sample and Miriam T. Sample
