Great Fish Challenge Incentive Grants – And the winners are….

The winner of the the first round of incentive grants is Child Bridge, receiving a $1000 grant, with second place going to CASA for Kids for the most money raised to date. And, North Valley Music School won the challenge for the highest number of donors to date, also receiving a $1,00 grant, followed by second place winner Sparrow’s Nest of NW MT. We decided to give out a second place incentive grant of $500 each in both categorizes because the nonprofits all worked so hard in round one! Excellent work! Thank you all for the community support!

You can help your favorite charity earn even more money through round two of the incentive grants program. Starting August 17 through September 9th, two more nonprofits will win money for having the highest number of donors (not donations) and two will win grants for raising the most money during this period. The slate is whipped clean and all nonprofits will start from zero for this incentive period. First place will win $1,000 and second $500 in each category. Don’t wait to make your donation. Donate now to help your nonprofits raise even more money. Winners will be announced at the September 10th Great Fish 5K/10K Color Run and Community Celebration. See details below.

Recent instant grant sponsors are Whitefish Mountain Resort and Whitefish Lake Restaurant. Congratulations to the winning organizations drawn from the fish bowl: Tamarack Grief Resource Center and Center for Restorative Youth Justice Center (CRYJ). Visit the Great Fish Community Challenge website to see all Instant Grant winners and sponsor listings.
