The Great Bear Foundation has an opportunity to stretch donations through a 24 hour online giving event through the Give Local initiative on May 3rd. No matter where you live, you can visit the Give Local Missoula County website on May 3rd to contribute to our programs through this powerful, one-day giving challenge to raise funds for local nonprofits.
Last year, the Missoula Community Foundation’s Give Local Missoula County initiative raised over $270,000 for local nonprofits. The Great Bear Foundation raised $2285 from 31 donors that day. This kind of giving event is especially useful to nonprofits like us because it allows us to use those contributions where they are needed most, as opposed to grant funds, which tend to be restricted to specific areas. Nonprofits depend on individual contributions and fundraisers to keep our projects and programs running strong.
The Give Local initiative stretches individual contributions with funds from a locally sponsored “stretch pool”, making your contribution go further.
Whether you live in Missoula County or elsewhere, it’s easy to participate in this 24 hour giving event. On May 3rd, simply visit the Give Local Missoula County website and find Great Bear Foundation under the Animals category. Click here to go directly to our giving page.
Thank you for your support!
