Last year during Give Big Gallatin Valley, the Gallatin River Task Force raised about $4,500 and was the #1 ranked environmental nonprofit raising funds. Join us this year on Tuesday, May 3rd to support clean, cold, and abundant water in the Gallatin River for future generations.
Give Big Gallatin Valley is a 24-hour charity event hosted by the Bozeman Area Community Foundation that coincides with Give Local America. According to the Give Big website:
We are making history in the Gallatin Valley – and all across America! The Bozeman Area Community Foundation’s Give Big Gallatin Valley Day is a 24-hour, online and live celebration of giving on May 3rd created to increase philanthropy in Gallatin County. The goal is simple – inspire neighbors to come together, show their pride in their communities, and contribute to support the life-changing work of local nonprofit organizations!
In our first year of Give Big Gallatin Valley on May 5th, 2015, our community raised over $237,000 in just 24-hours for 100 local nonprofits. On May 3rd, 2016 our county-wide goal is to raise $300,000 through 2,000 donors on Give Big Gallatin.
To incentivize giving, businesses and organizations have contributed to a Stretch and Prize pool of funds. This means that every dollar given on May 3rd during Give Big Gallatin will get a boost from a matching pool of funds.
The Gallatin River is accepting pledge forms in advance. To pledge, visit our website. Or giving on May 3rd, 2016 is as easy as 1, 2, 3.
