This charitable giving campaign benefits 53 local charities in 2019. Support all your favorite charities and help them earn a percentage match from the Whitefish Community Foundation.
There are two categories for giving: Community Donors and Challengers. Community Donors make a single designated gift, allocated between the specific nonprofits they wish to support. Challengers give to the Great Fish Match Fund to help increase the Match, which will substantially increase the impact of each participating organization’s fundraising efforts during the Challenge giving period. And don't forget to run in the 5K to earn points for your favorite nonprofit.
The challenge runs through September 13, 2019. Visit www.whitefishcommunityfoundation.org for more information.

Glacier FEAST is a newly formed nonprofit collective whose mission is to strengthen local food systems in the Flathead Valley.
Local growers and food advocates formed Glacier FEAST (Farmers and Eaters Advocating Sustainability Together) “with the intention of supporting the expansion of Flathead Valley’s food growing economy into a thriving community-based system that is values-based and enhances the community’s economic, nutritional, social and environmental health,” according to a press release.
“Recognizing that a fully-functioning system includes everyone (if you eat, you’re in!), Glacier FEAST, a project of FarmHands Nourish, seeks to build awareness and help connect the dots in the system by bringing folks to the table from all parts of the local food system, including: producers, processors, distributors, consumers, and recycling/recovery,” the group stated.
In 1990, the Stumptown Historical Society acquired the Whitefish Railway Depot from BNSF Railway and invested almost $1 million dollars in its three year restoration. They now rent to BNSF and Amtrak and maintain the Deport and the Whitefish Museum which has many fascinating railroad and community artifacts. Our museum staff is happy to answer questions about Whitefish, the Flathead Valley and the museum.
The museum is open Monday through Saturday from 11AM to 3PM and admission is free. Find out more on-line by visiting www.stumptownhistoricalsociety.org.
