Building an Endowment
Every community is blessed with individuals who stand out as philanthropic leaders. In Billings, Dorothy Metz has set an exceptional example for others by investing in projects that have transformed Billings Clinic and other organizations in our community. A country girl at heart, Dorothy has been quietly making a difference since moving to Billings in 1987. Sadly, nine years ago she lost her son ‘Bus’ who had fought a long battle with diabetes, he was only 48. In his memory Dorothy established the Byron Metz Endowment for Diabetes, helping those struggling with this terrible disease while creating perpetual funding for the endocrinology program. In addition to her philanthropic support, Dorothy has shared her knowledge and expertise through serving on multiple community boards including the Billings Clinic Foundation Board of Directors.
