Greater Helena Gives event to help area nonprofits

Phil Drake

The Helena Area Community Foundation will have its eighth annual Greater Helena Gives fundraising event Thursday and Friday, and a record number of 96 nonprofit organizations have signed up to benefit.

Greater Helena Gives is the foundation’s annual 24-hour online giving campaign focused on raising money and drawing attention to the local nonprofit community.

The impact in this one 24-hour period is staggering for the nonprofits in our communities, said Emily Frazier, Helena Area Community Foundation executive director.

“That’s 96 different missions, 96 visions of what our community could look like, and 96 different reasons to visit,” Frazier said, adding it’s the largest number of nonprofits ever to register. 

Greater Helena Gives event is May 5-6.
