The Great Fish Community Challenge is an innovative fundraiser that inspires the community to give, raises awareness, and helps charities raise important program money. In the end, charities earn a percentage matching grant from the Whitefish Community Foundation.
In just three years in action, the Challenge has raised over $4.5 million benefiting over 50 different charities and supporting community causes such as expanding conservation, improving human services, advancing education, and enhancing local arts and culture.
Nonprofits in the Challenge work to raise money during the campaign. All gifts are processed through the Community Foundation. At the end of the campaign, Whitefish Community Foundation will provide a percentage match on the first $20,000 raised by each participating nonprofit. Learn more about the Match here.Read More
