NeighborWorks Great Falls received incredible community-wide support with the 2021 Fund Drive. Each Spring, NeighborWorks hosts their annual Fund Drive to garner the support of area businesses and continue building strong neighborhoods and successful homeowners in Great Falls. This year, NeighborWorks reformed the annual Fund Drive, asking area businesses to host internal and/or external fundraisers on behalf of NeighborWorks Great Falls.
From donating a portion of sales to 50/50 drawings, each business tapped into their creative side to implement a fundraiser for NeighborWorks Great Falls that worked for their employees and customers. NeighborWorks could not be more grateful to the following businesses that participated in the Fund Drive this year:
• The Block
• Central Avenue Meats
• Smith’s Food & Drug
• Ferrin’s Furniture
• Brush Crazy
• Montana Credit Union
• Universal Lending
• PayneWest Insurance
• Wells Fargo Home Mortgage
• Chicago Title Company
• Embark Credit Union
• 1st Liberty Federal Credit Union
Based on dollars raised from March 1st-6th, the Fund Drive Business of the Year is Montana Credit Union! Montana CU organized several fundraisers including Swipe for a Cause, donating $.02 per debit/credit swipe to NeighborWorks, basket raffles, a 50/50 drawing, and Be the DJ Day, where employees could pay to play a song of choice throughout all three Montana CU locations. Thank you to Montana Credit Union and all participating businesses for supporting NeighborWorks and investing in the Great Falls community. Additionally, NeighborWorks Great Falls ended the Fund Drive week with a generous gift from Embark Credit Union for $2,500 designate for their Annual Campaign.
