32 Nonprofits have been working to raise money during the Great Fish Community Challenge. Whitefish Community Foundation presented the platform for the 32 selected nonprofits to use to encourage a season of giving like one never seen before in Whitefish. Nonprofits raised over $900,000 through the Challenge. The Foundation will provide a percentage match on the first $15,000 raised by each nonprofit. The final amount of the match will be announced and checks will be presented at the October 7 event.
There will be several incentive grants announced which are being calculated from the points nonprofits earned along the way by being involved with planning the Great Fish 5K Color Run and Fair held September 12, as well as number of runners that signed up for your organization, the best interactive booth award and the organization that recieved the largest number of donors during the challenge.
