Kudos to the Community Foundation!
'Day of Giving' nets $560k
for 78 local non-profits
More than 1,300 donors dug deep into their wallets last week to help local charities on "Giving Tuesday," contributing nearly $487,000 in just 28 hours time.
The Whitefish Community Foundation added another $75,000 in matching funds to the pot, bringing the total raised in this one-of-a-kind event to $561,707 ... funds that will help support dozens of local non-profit organizations whose budgets are reeling from the effects of the COVID-19 crisis.
WCF President Linda Engh-Grady said the Foundation was "amazed at the incredible generosity" of the Flathead Valley community during such a difficult and uncertain time, and recognized the Flathead Community Foundation, Glacier Bank and First Interstate Bank for their assistance in promoting the event and collecting donations.
