Match Challenge: Double Your Impact
From September 16th to October 1st, 2021, realtors from across the Gallatin Valley are challenging one another to raise money for Family Promise.
The challenge begins with $5,000 from Keller Williams and we are challenging you and your team to raise an additional $45,000 to fund our new early childhood learning center playground. GMD Development has donated $50,000 towards the total cost of $100,000. Your dollars will go directly towards this innovative playground that offers Family Promise preschoolers a variety of challenge, activity, and sensory exploration for different ages and abilities. Designed by Learning by Nature, it features locations throughout that provide opportunity for fine and gross motor skill development. From log steps, hillside boulders, sand play, and quiet nooks to accessible pathways, students will be actively engaged in their play, environment, community, and one another. If the $50,000 goal is met an additional $50,000 challenge will be made to fund a Pre-K classroom.

About Family Promise of Gallatin Valley:
Family Promise of Gallatin Valley was founded in 2006 by a diverse group of community volunteers with one goal: to end homelessness, one family at a time. At Family Promise, we provide shelter, intensive case management and support to families in regaining their independence and developing the skills they need to stay independent. Family Promise proudly maintains a 75% success rate, meaning that 7 out of 10 families complete our program with sustainable childcare, a permanent job, and a stable housing situation.
As Bozeman’s only year-round sheltering option, it is crucial that we continue to serve families facing homelessness when we are needed the most—after eviction, job loss, family separation, illness, and other issues that know no season. Just this year we have served 3x the number of families and have outgrown our current Day Center and office space.
