Over the past few years, working families have been faced with impossible choices, between medical care and paying a mortgage, keeping the lights on or childcare. The economic impact of a pandemic, local natural disasters, and the rising cost of living has affected us all. But, together, we are breaking down barriers and meeting those challenges head-on. United, we will help our neighbors move from surviving to thriving.
Last year, our annual campaign raised more than $250,000 to support critical programs in our community. Because of people like you, we can continue to grow our programs while also responding to those in crisis.
- Last year we expanded our critical kidsLINK Afterschool Program to honor our commitment to working families so that every elementary-age child in Gallatin County has access to affordable, high-quality after school programs.
- We’ve raised and distributed more than $3 million to our neighbors impacted by tragic flooding in Park County.
- In partnership with First Lady Gianforte of Montana and the Treasure State Foundation we expanded Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library to ensure all children from birth to age 5 receive a free book each month in Gallatin and Park County to improve early literacy skills in our state.
- And this year we launched all-day summer camp programs in Bozeman, Belgrade and Big Sky with the goal of providing working parents with an affordable summer experience that would get their children having fun while learning.
Because of you, last year's campaign raised more than $250,000 for our Community Impact Fund to help support 24 nonprofits and programs throughout four counties.
We understand the importance of working together, through collaborations and partnerships we are able to bridge the gap for working families. We cannot do our work alone. The Greater Gallatin United Way Annual Campaign is centered around improving the quality of lives throughout Gallatin, Park, Madison and Meagher counties. UNITED IN PURPOSE we can continue to make an impact and ensure everyone in every Greater Gallatin community can thrive.
