Thanks for helping the Craighead Institute in the Gallatin Valley with the GIVE BIG campaign.
We ended up with $2,270 which was 0.95% of the grand total raised ($237,535.55).
The event had participation from a wide range of Gallatin Valley non-profits, 101 in total. Most of them have a primary focus on the community and on human-oriented causes. The categories used to describe non-profits were: Animal, Arts and Culture, Community Improvement, Education, Environment, Health, Human Services, and Youth Development.
Health, Education, and Art were the big winners. Wildlife received about 5% of the total. This was more a reflection of who participated rather than overall values of the donors I believe. I did a quick analysis of the results with a simpler break down:
Our mission is to maintain healthy populations of native plants and animals along with human communities in sustainable, functioning ecosystems.
