Immediately following the devastating June 2022 flooding, the Southwest Montana Flood Relief Fund - Serving Park County, was created to support communities affected by the severe flooding in primarily Park County.
The creation of the fund is a joint effort between the Greater Gallatin United Way (GGUW) and Park County Community Foundation (PCCF) to streamline support and focus it to the areas of our region that need it most. Those wishing to help people most impacted by the flooding in Southwest Montana are encouraged to donate to this fund.
In less than 24 hours, the fund received over $350,000 in initial seed funding thanks to the generosity of Arthur M. Blank Family Foundation, Deborah Erdman, Dennis and Phyllis Washington Foundation, in conjunction with Montana Rail Link, Willow Creek Ranch, Yellowstone Club Community Foundation and others.
As of 9/1/2022 we have raised over $2.7 Million total with $1.5 Million in contributions from more than 1700 donors nationwide, plus an additional $1.2 Million generously raised from benefit events and auctions coordinated by John Mayer, Pine Creek Lodge, and nugs.net. We thank them for their collaboration and efforts. Click HERE to see a list of donors.
Since the launch of the SW MT Flood Relief Fund, we have been able to distribute $1,000,530 to about 293 individuals and households, and checks continue to be distributed every week. This money has been used to help pay for things like rebuilding costs, mold remediation, evacuation reimbursement, well-water testing, rental assistance, lost wage recovery, business damages and other crisis needs.
Although we've come a long way since June, this disaster is far from over. Please consider donating today to help those most impacted.
