FISCALLY SPONSORED PROJECTS

The Helena Area Community Foundation (HACF) offers fiscal sponsorship opportunities to select projects that aim to enhance the greater Helena area. This initiative allows community-focused projects to benefit from HACF’s tax-exempt status, facilitating fundraising and grant-seeking efforts.

Importantly, the fiscal sponsorship monies are designated solely for the sponsored projects and are not for HACF’s discretionary use. This ensures that funds are dedicated to advancing the specific initiatives that contribute to the betterment of the Helena community, though HACF does retain a modest administrative fee for our efforts.

If you are seeking fiscal sponsorship for a project in the greater Helena area and would like to be considered by the Helena Area Community Foundation, please reach out to executive director at emilyf@helenaareacommunityfoundation.org.  

Threshold of Life Memorial for Organ Donation

“A Symbol of Hope for Those in Waiting”

To recognize those who give the Ultimate Gift of life, the Governor’s Office of Community Service, alongside lead architect and artist Ken VanDeWalle are working to create a permanent memorial on the Capitol Grounds in Helena Montana.

In 2023, this memorial was approved in accordance with House Bill 585, which states that the cost of procurement, installation,  and maintenance of the memorial must be paid for from private funds. With all goal of raising $500,000 in the next three years, this project will serve to honor those who gave others life.

Helena Business Improvement District

Help Helena glow by supporting the Business Improvement District’s Flower Program

Do you love the look and feel of Downtown Helena in the summer? Help Helena glow by supporting the Downtown flower program. Businesses, organizations, or individuals who want to support Downtown can do so by sponsoring the flower program! As a sponsor, you help cover the cost of the flowers, supplies, and labor to keep Downtown a beautiful backdrop to your summer fun. To show our appreciation, all sponsors who wish to be named will be mentioned on BID social media posts and listed as a supporter of Downtown Helena on the BID website.

Flower Sponsorships are $50/basket.

The Helena BID’s Design Committee is currently planning for the 2024 Downtown Flower Basket season. We order the flowers from High Country Growers each year and they arrive downtown by June, remaining on display through September. Our community gets to enjoy these flowers all summer long, inviting folks to stroll the downtown shops or spend an evening out and about in Downtown Helena. Our sponsors are a big part of our success in continuing this program which brings joy to locals and visitors alike.
