What is the Great Fish Community Challenge?
The Great Fish Community Challenge is a Whitefish Community Foundation annual charitable giving campaign designed to maximize your donations. The 2017 Giving Period is scheduled for July 26 running through September 14.
How are donations maximized? At the end of the giving period, the Community Foundation will award an additional percentage match to participating nonprofits from its own Great Fish Fund. Your gifts will make an even greater impact when combined with the additional grant.
The Great Fish Community Challenge will benefit nonprofits by promoting their mission and encouraging significant community participation. The Challenge kicks off July 26 and will end September 14 at 5 PM. Participation is free for nonprofits. Whitefish Community Foundation manages the Challenge and covers advertising, marketing, gift administration and event costs. The campaign will culminate with a Community Celebration and Great Fish Color Run in Depot Park on September 8.
Who is Eligible to Participate?
Any nonprofit that serves the Whitefish community is eligible to participate. Applications for the Great Fish Challenge will be available starting February 1. Applications must be submitted online on or before February 28. Nonprofits will be notified of acceptance by April 20.
