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



We were inspired by the community’s generosity in 2014 (please click graphic above for more  information) and are excited to announce the second Give Local Missoula event on MAY 5, 2015! “Cinco de Donate” will be a giving holiday when you can support the causes you are passionate about.


The day will tap 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 is 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.

Thank you Give Local Missoula Sponsors
