MORE ABOUT DONATING VIA CHECK:

We strongly encourage all check donations to be mailed by Friday, April 19th, to ensure they can be added to the nonprofit's giving totals during Give Big. Checks sent later may not make it to the nonprofit before 6pm on May 3rd, so they may not be counted in their end-of-day totals. Donations entered after 6pm on May 3rd will still be reflected on the Give Big website but may not be included in press releases or media coverage of the giving day. If you have questions about giving via check, please contact Jill Ellwood, Nonprofit Programming & Relations Manager of One Valley Community Foundation, at jill@onevalley.org or 406-587-6262 x 20. 

1) Directly to the organization: If you would prefer to give via check to support an organization during Give Big, the check needs to be:

  • Mailed/delivered to the organization before 6pm on May 3rd
  • Dated May 2nd or May 3rd AND/OR have Give Big in the memo line - this donation must be given to the organization with the intent that it be used for Give Big.

    Receipting:

    • If the nonprofit has your email address: your receipt may be sent via email when the nonprofit adds your donation to their Give Big profile.
    • If the nonprofit does NOT have your email address: they will receipt you directly via mail after Give Big.

2) Via One Valley Community Foundation -
If you would like to give gifts to multiple organizations through one offline donation, you may:

  • Mail an Offline Donation Form (available April 1st) and check to One Valley Community Foundation or deliver it by May 3rd.
    • One Valley Community Foundation mailing address: 1627 W. Main Street #404 Bozeman, MT 59715
    • One Valley Community Foundation physical address: 865 Technology Blvd, Ste B, Bozeman, MT 59718
    • Write the check out to One Valley Community Foundation.
    • Checks are written to One Valley Community Foundation because these funds run through One Valley. A donor can give to multiple nonprofits through one check written out to One Valley Community Foundation, and we then distribute those funds to the nonprofits. We cannot process a check donation made to any organization other than One Valley. One Valley does not keep any portion of the gift unless directed to by the donor.

    • You will be receipted by One Valley Community Foundation after Give Big.
