About the Great Fish Community Challenge

In just four years in action, the Challenge has raised over $7 million benefiting over 55 different charities and supporting community causes such as expanding conservation, improving human services, advancing education, and enhancing local arts and culture.

The Great Fish Community Challenge is an innovative fundraiser that inspires our community to give, raises awareness, and helps charities raise important program money. In the end, charities earn a percentage matching grant from Whitefish Community Foundation.

The 2019 Challenge will launch July 25 and run through September 13. Join us for the Great Fish Community Challenge Color Run and Community Celebration September 7th.

Nonprofits in the Challenge work to raise money during the campaign. All gifts are processed through the Community Foundation. At the end of the campaign, Whitefish Community Foundation will provide a percentage match on the first $20,000 raised by each participating nonprofit.
