Southwest Montana COVID-19 Response Fund Fund
About This Fund
Your donation ensures that those who are feeling the effects of the COVID-19 Crisis in our community can get the resources they need. Initial funding will focus on five primary areas of need: food and supplies distribution, emergency housing, emergency financial assistance, health and wellbeing, and programs and supplies needed to support crisis response.
Greater Gallatin United Way (GGUW) and Bozeman Area Community Foundation (BACF) have partnered to rapidly mobilize resources to those disproportionately affected by COVID-19 in Gallatin, Madison, Meagher and Park Counties by co-launching the Southwest Montana COVID-19 Response Fund.
About The Host Organization
United Way of Gallatin County (original name) was established in 1978. The first board meeting was held on September 14, 1978 after the Bozeman Chamber of Commerce hosted public comment on the concept of a centralized philanthropic organization for our community. Members of the Chamber volunteered as board members, actively recruited board members, raised funds, wrote by-laws, and drafted the Articles of Incorporation. GGUW continues to be the community leader in collective impact-driven work. We believe that real long-term change is best generated by working collectively through a common agenda. GGUW fights for the health, education and financial stability of every person in Gallatin, Madison, Meagher and Park Counties.
