The staff is kind, friendly, caring, empathetic, and extra helpful. Bonterra is a very collaborative team, it shows. The community of resources (peers, [presentations], blog articles, etc.) created by Bonterra is extremely helpful and regularly updated." - Missoula Community Foundation  
  • "Anyone who knows me knows that I am a huge advocate for great customer service when it comes to a business. There are times where I will research reviews and articles for days on an organization before I make a  decision! I feel it should be expected. Bonterra's customer service, I feel, is on a whole other level. I commend you for a  huge chunk of this. From the way that my needs were met, and questions answered in a timely manner, to the  encouragement I received along the way - I was, and still am, 100% completely satisfied." – Lamar University
