Give LOCAL Missoula is a powerful 24-hour, online giving event that connects Missoulians with community nonprofits like Run Wild Missoula to reinforce the value of both local philanthropic giving and community engagement. LOCAL nonprofits’ involvement in the event will give members of our community the chance to find and support an organization whose mission aligns with their passion, or to make an amplified impact to an organization they already support with the help of the Missoula Community Foundation’s $10,000 Stretch Pool. Give LOCAL Missoula’s 2014 goal is to raise $100,000 for Missoula nonprofits during this one day!
Sponsored by the Missoula Community Foundation, Give LOCAL Missoula is part of a national event with local impact. They are joining communities across the country on May 6th in a one-day online giving challenge to raise funds for local causes.
Marking the centennial anniversary of community foundations, Give Local America allows Missoula to generate significant funds for causes right in our own backyard. For one day, every dollar given to local nonprofits will be matched by funds from a local pool of sponsorships, as well as national matches – making every gift go further.
On May 6th at 12:00am, Give LOCAL Missoula will begin accepting donations to dozens of area nonprofits and causes – for one day only.
Everyone can be a philanthropist. The Missoula Community Foundation is asking every person in the community to get behind this effort. Large and small gifts will combine for big impact. Imagine what Missoula can accomplish if we invite our entire community to give local!
