Missoula Gives & Bitterroot Gives 2022

Have you dreamed of making an impact? Of course, we all have. And now we have a chance to be a part of Missoula and Ravalli Counties’ day of giving – an opportunity to be a force for good and help nonprofit organizations that support our community. Please join Clearwater and the Missoula Community Foundation in raising much-needed funds for our communities!

What is Missoula Gives?

Missoula Gives is a powerful online and in-person giving event organized by the Missoula Community Foundation designed to grow philanthropy in Missoula County by connecting donors to the nonprofits that make our town so special.

Organizations that are verified 501(c)(3) charitable nonprofits that are headquartered or provide services in Missoula can participate in Missoula Gives. Anyone may donate. Donations through the Missoula Gives online portal to charitable nonprofit organizations are tax-deductible and cannot be refunded. Contributions may be made via credit or debit card only. Donations will be received and receipted by GiveGab.

How does it work?

Visit MissoulaGives.org. Choose a charity, and donate. It’s simple. And, there is absolutely no risk or out-of-pocket cost to any participating nonprofit. After registering online, all donations collected are deposited directly into each nonprofit’s bank account within 24-48 hours. A small percent of the donations brought in may be deducted to cover processing and administrative fees, although all donors have the opportunity to cover those costs (and most of them will) so that the charity realizes the full donation.
