To provide leadership and inspire long-term local philanthropy to ensure the diversity and vitality of the greater Missoula community.


Our local nonprofits perform superhuman feats of kindness on a daily basis…and many people were superheroes for them on May 5th! We raised more than $270,000 for 135 local nonprofits in 24 hours. People donated online at GiveLocalMissoula.org . You can see the final results there.


The day taps into our community’s passion for giving to bring together new and existing donors with local nonprofits. Give LOCAL Missoula is designed to engage first-time donors and donors under 40 while raising the profile of charitable giving in Missoula. Our 2015 goal was to raise $200,000 for local nonprofits and for 5% of Missoulians to give on May 5. It’s easy- as little as $10 makes a big difference.
