GREATER HELENA GIVES
In addition to grants, HACF also tries to help nonprofits do their own fundraising and donor engagement. One way that HACF accomplishes this is by hosting Greater Helena Gives, a 24-hour online fundraiser to support the nonprofits around Helena. Anyone can easily make a donation to the nonprofit(s) of their choice from a single website. The nonprofits who participate are also selected to receive monetary prizes throughout the 24-period. In 2017, Greater Helena Gives raised $82,000 for 61 local nonprofits in twenty-four hours. This year, we hope to grow to $100,00 and serve 100 nonprofits.
1st Year—2015– 54 nonprofits, $40,000
2nd Year—2016—89 nonprofits, $39,000
3rd Year—2017—63 nonprofits, $82,000
4th Year—2018—Goal for 100 nonprofits and over $100,000
