Going To The Sun Rally Giving
In seven years of charitable giving, The Going To The Sun Rally has given back more than $400,000.00 to the communities that make Montana such a special place.
The Going To The Sun Rally donates to worthy Montana organizations through the generosity of rally participants and sponsors. The intention of the rally Board of Directors is to provide funds as directly as possible to local organizations that rely on private donations and provide a positive, meaningful benefit to Montanans in the communities we visit. We listen and respond to the suggestions and recommendations of people in these communities, as each community is unique in its needs. In general, we seek opportunities to support Montana based, Montana focused organizations that foster self-sufficiency, educational opportunity, leadership development, cultural enrichment, and environmental stewardship.
A major beneficiary of our fundraising efforts is the Friends of the Association of Montana Troopers. This fund helps Montana families who have lost loved ones in the line of duty. Other recipients include Big Brothers Big Sisters of Park County, a number of educational institutions, such as the Red Lodge Vocational School, Blackfeet Community College, and the De La Salle Christian Brothers School in Browning, environmental and cultural organizations, such as the The Clark Fork Coalition, dedicated to protecting and restoring the Clark Fork River basin, and The Headwaters Trail System in Three Forks, medical organizations including Madison Valley Medical Center in Ennis, and the Montana Telemedicine Networks. In 2010 we created a special fundraising effort that raised over $40,000 to benefit Montana’s disabled veterans.
