When we embarked on the first Great Fish Community Challenge in 2015 we had great excitement but not without a serious amount of trepidation. We could not help asking the question, “will it be accepted?”. Who would have imagined that today, with just 45 charities we would actually raise over $2 million in the third annual campaign.

We are fortunate to have an incredibly involved Board of Directors and a very dedicated staff, who make up the remarkable team driving the Whitefish Community Foundation.

We are so proud of our community and the work of our local nonprofits. We are honored by your generosity and faith in our work. You rise to the challenge because you see the needs.

Our community is not free of struggles. There are many urgent and important needs not just affecting our Whitefish neighbors, but also in our neighboring communities. As we move forward with our work we will strive to do what we can to expand our reach. With your continued help, we will make a serious difference.

So to all of you, for your commitment, for your support, we want to express our genuine gratitude. Thank you for making Whitefish an extraordinary community. We are wishing you all a wonderful holiday season!

Very sincerely,

Linda Engh-Grady, President and the Team at Whitefish Community Foundation
