Important Give Big Updates!


Hi Laura,
We deeply apologize for the challenges that have faced the Give Big initiative today. Laura, we are grateful for your grace and patience as we are doing our best to manage these challenges in a timely manner.
Due to circumstances beyond our control, the national online donation platform, Kimbia, that we are using for Give Big Gallatin Valley has crashed due to the high volume of traffic across the nation to the website.
Unfortunately, communities all over the country are dealing with this same issue from Seattle to Pittsburgh. We are working with Kimbia to resolve the issue as quickly as possible. Please continue to check the Bozeman Area Community Foundation Facebook page for real-time updates.
In the event that Kimbia is unable to repair the site by 1:45 p.m. we are going transition to alternative donation plans:
First Option: Gift of Check
As a donor, you can write checks your favorite organizations and drop them at any of the awesome donor lounges around the valley including the Check Donation Station at First Interstate Bank (202 W. Main St.) until 4pm. After 4pm, you can bring your check + donation forms to The Baxter (105 W. Main). in the Ballroom until 8pm. Donors MUST complete the check donation form located in the online toolkit. 
You can find a list of donor lounges in the Bozeman Daily Chronicle Insert or check out for a list of organizations hosting events throughout the day.  
Check donation form:
Second Option: Phone Bank Donations
Foundant Technologies has generously setup a phone bank to accept donations. You can call 406-922-0004 to make a donation.  Phone bank staff will note: organization name, donation amount and credit card information.
Third Option: Online Through Bozeman Area Community Foundation Site
Give through the Bozeman Area Community Foundation site and make sure to note which organization(s) you are donating to.

In gratitude,
