Give Local Montana Day is on May 3, and we are hoping to raise $1,000,000 for Montana. Glendive is one of the participating communities hoping to raise at least $20,000. Dawson County non-profits that sign up by March 31 will be part of the 24-hour online crowd fundraising event. Please support them and make our communities an even better place to live by going to MT Gives and clicking on communities/Glendive.

Thank you to the generous people of Glendive! Local nonprofits received $6000 for their causes on May 5, Give Local America, Give Local Glendive Day!

There are tools that can help you take care of your financial future, your families and the causes you care about while taking advantage of the maximum tax benefits.

Amy Sullivan, Director of the Montana Office of Gift Planning, can help you with planned gifts that can help you support your community and help yourself, with 40% Montana income tax credit for individuals through a planned gift or 20% Montana tax credit simply by writing a check from your business or corporation. It's a gift that gives twice—helping you and the community or cause you care about. Contact Amy Sullivan at 443-8313, ext. 112, or amy@mtcf.org

Here for Good—the Greater Glendive Community Foundation board of directors has decided to make a big impact with your generous donations to our community. We will be working with service groups on a strategic plan to make our community even better and use the earnings from your gifts—so far over $7000 last year and match it with grants to leverage your gifts and leave a lasting legacy.

There is still time and opportunity to make a difference in our community by contributing to our foundation. Most of Montana's community foundations are like Glendive's, less than ten years old, have no paid staff and have limited resources to expand. With accelerating state and federal budget cuts, it is increasingly important that communities operate collaboratively and efficiently. Community foundations can effectively support this culture and help foster civic engagement and local philanthropy. Our funds, like 500 other non-profits, are expertly managed by the Montana Community Foundation professionals and their financial investors. Their records speak for themselves.

Greater Glendive Community Foundation. Here for good. Forever.
