The countdown has reached single digits ó only nine days remain to donate to Whitefish Community Foundationís Great Fish Community Challenge.
This is a unique opportunity to maximize your contribution to local nonprofits serving our community.
Through the Great Fish, 40 selected charities will receive a matching grant from the foundation. The match is calculated by a percentage of how much is raised by the nonprofits against how much the foundation has in the Great Fish Match Fund. Last summer more than $1.1 million was raised for 32 nonprofits.
Itís easy to donate, either online at www.greatfishchallenge.org, or by picking up a donation brochure.
For those who absolutely must wait until the final moments, be sure to attend the Great Fish Nonprofit Fair and Color Run this Saturday at Depot Park. Festivities begin at 9 a.m. Donations made at the Sept. 10 celebration will be entered into a drawing to earn additional gifts of up to $100. More than $1,000 in incentive grants will be awarded at the Color Run.
The Great Fish campaign officially ends at 5 p.m. on Sept. 16. Donít delay, this is the season of giving in Whitefish.
