News from the Greater Polson Community Foundation
POLSON — It’s our most favorite time of the year, On June 29, the Greater Polson Community Foundation awarded our Annual IMPACT Grants to 12 local non-profits as part of its 2023 IMPACT grant cycle. Directors and Team members were on hand from Code Girls United, Polson Boxing Club, Flathead Lake Bio Station, Miracle of America Museum, Ninepipes, Flathead Lake International Cinema fest, North Lake County Library, Mission Valley Aquatics, the Mission Valley Animal Shelter, Boys & Girls Club of Flathead Reservation, Polson Parks Department, and the Mission Valley Choral Society. Directors were on hand to discuss their projects and accept funds on behalf of the nonprofits.
Since 2009, over $1,275,000. has been granted to organizations to meet our community needs. “Being able to support our community non-profits and their projects is definitely a highlight of our year, we are able to do these grants because our donors truly love making a difference” said GPCF Grants Chairman Jeanette Phillips. Gifts and donations make it possible to add significantly to the permanent endowment, which totals over a million dollars. Grants are funded by the interest earnings from the permanent endowment and are awarded annually through Trust Based Grants in February and Impact Grants in July.
With the 2023 grant projects off and running, the GPCF continues to put our words into action by inspiring philanthropy, community pride and improvement.
