$2,000 in matching grants will kick off the Great Fish Community Challenge!

Whitefish Community Foundation will host the Great Fish Launch Party at Glacier Bank in downtown Whitefish on August 5th from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Your donation of $25 or more made at the Great Fish Launch Party will be entered into a drawing for a chance to win a matching grant for one organization from Whitefish Community Foundation’s $2,000 pool.

If your name is drawn from the fish bowl of donors during the event, you could earn an additional $25, $50, or even $100 for your selected charity. (Minimum $25 donation to one charity to qualify for drawing). Donate early at the event for more chances to win!

Join us for music, craft beer by Brewing Academy of Montana at FVCC, and charcuterie from Trovare of Whitefish. Come socialize with the nonprofits making the Flathead a great place to live, work, and play.
