The Flathead Community Foundation (FCF) is a public, charitable, nonprofit organization established in 2005 by local community members who loved the Flathead Valley, were committed to its best future, and knew that their friends and neighbors were as well. FCF was created to encourage philanthropic giving and to make it as effective and easy as possible.
The Flathead Community Foundation connects donors from all walks of life with the broad spectrum of charitable organizations that are maintaining and enriching life in the Flathead area. We are a bridge between the generous people who want to give and the dedicated people who use these gifts to make our community the place we love to call home.
“A community is the mental and spiritual condition of knowing that the place is shared, and that the people who share the place define and limit the possibilities of each other's lives. It is the knowledge that people have of each other, their concern for each other, their trust in each other, the freedom with which they come and go among themselves.” ― Wendell Berry
