Give A Hoot

Give a Hoot is a month-long Community Giving Challenge that connects community members with causes they care about most.

Funds raised by participating nonprofits during Give a Hoot are eligible to receive a partial match from the Park County Community Foundation due to the support of our generous Give a Hoot Co-Challengers.
