Day of Giving and Unity – giving tuesday

Local nonprofit organizations raised more than $394,000 for programs and projects during the Day of Giving & Unity campaign May 4 and 5. Hosted by Whitefish Community Foundation, the 28-hour campaign provided a convenient way for donors to support 91 nonprofits serving the Flathead Valley and Eureka.
Organizations that raised at least $2,000 received a $1,000 matching grant from Whitefish Community Foundation, made possible by individuals who designated their gifts to the match and members of the foundation’s Circle of Giving. In addition to $80,000 in matching grants, Whitefish Community Foundation awarded 24 $100 incentive grants throughout the campaign to encourage participation, bringing the total raised to $476,655.

Experience a donor advised FUND

A Donor Advised Fund offers individuals and families the ease and flexibility of giving, similar to a private foundation but without all the expense and administration. Gifts of cash or appreciated securities can be donated to set up your fund. You use your fund to make grants to charities over a period of time. Your gift can grow tax free through several investment options. The Community Foundation will do all the administration so that you can focus on your philanthropy.

Legacy Logo

Leave Your Legacy

A Legacy Fund is a charitable tool that allows you to set up a bequest to your community to direct your gift to the nonprofits that are aligned with your interests and passions. A Legacy Fund is a designated endowment fund that allows your gift to make annual distributions from your named fund in perpetuity. It is a wonderful way for you to leave a legacy to your community and be remembered for it.                                


Whitefish Community Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization focused on fostering philanthropy, building endowments and helping donors benefit our community. Our work makes the Great Fish Community Challenge possible.
