Our goal is to build and sustain free housing that will support patients and their families in North Central Montana.
For many years, there has been a great need in our community for patient housing while receiving outpatient treatment. A patient housing facility has become our top priority.

COVID-19 Capital Campaign Address
As you may know, COVID-19 has been affecting the community in many ways. It is with great sadness, that we inform you of our plans to temporarily pause our capital campaign efforts and postpone our ground breaking. Due to the current state of the economy, our fundraising efforts have been put on hold, making it impossible for us to break ground in spring 2020.

We are hopeful that fundraising efforts will begin again in July 2020 but it will depend greatly on the economy’s ability to bounce back.

To-date, we have successfully raised over $2.2 million of the $3.4 million we need to build a new 12-unit Harold & Carmen Poulsen Legacy Housing facility to help meet the needs of our out-of-town patients. Your continued support directly helps cancer patients, children, family and fellow Montana rural neighbors, by reducing the financial burden and stress during their medical treatment, ultimately increasing the level of care and promoting overall health and wellness.

We want to take a moment to thank you for your support and understanding. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at 406-771-3107.

Mark your calendars!  We are excited to announce our annual fundraiser will be held Friday evening, October 23, 2020.

We are pleased to announce Kat Perkins will be headlining our event as the main entertainment.

Perkins grew up in Scranton, North Dakota and she quickly gained the attention of the local Twin Cities music scene by taking stages in several projects and bands she formed over the years. The most successful being her rock band, Scarlet Haze, which opened for Bon Jovi, amongst working with some of the music industry's most well-known acts. After a hiatus from performing, she made a musical comeback in 2014 by auditioning and appearing on season 6 of NBC's The Voice. Kat sailed to the finals with her coach Adam Levine and charted in the top 5 on iTunes several times with her stand-out performances on the show. She continues to go on military tours to perform for the troops overseas and continues to have sold out venues across America.

If you or someone you know is interested in purchasing a table or sponsorship opportunities for this event, please have them contact the Foundation.  We are currently accepting live and silent auction items for this important event.  We will announce more details as they become available.

If you are interested in donating or volunteering for the annual fundraiser, please call 406-771-3107 or email samantha.shinaberger@gfclinic.com.
