One Week Left to Increase the Power of Your Gift


SEELEY LAKE - Donate by Aug. 3 to the Change Your Pace Challenge to grow your contribution to Seeley Lake! The Change Your Pace (CYP) Challenge runs through 5 p.m. leaving only one more week to increase the power of a donation to your favorite local cause(s), with the help of the CYP Match Fund.

The Seeley Lake Community Foundation’s third-annual Change Your Pace Challenge is a campaign for community-wide giving, celebrating the people and organizations that make our community great. 17 local organizations are participating this year, raising money for important projects during this ten-week fundraising challenge.

SLCF Executive Director Claire Muller says, “We’re excited to encourage community philanthropy and increase support for all the great work our local groups are doing. Together let’s support the hard-working organizations that support our community!”

The Change Your Pace Challenge motivates community members to give to their favorite participating local organizations, knowing their gifts will grow larger thanks to the Change Your Pace Challenge Match Fund. In 2016, the Change Your Pace Challenge raised over $113,000 for all participating organizations, and in 2017, over $81,000. Let’s make 2018 another successful year!


Congratulations to Alpine Artisans, Big Blackfoot Chapter of Trout Unlimited, and the fireworks fund for the Seeley Lake Chamber of Commerce, which have each raised over $5,000 through the 2018 Change Your Pace Challenge!

After the donation period closes Aug. 3, each organization’s donation totals will be tallied, and the match percentage will be calculated based on how big the CYP Match Fund grows. Participating organizations will be recognized through a check-presentation ceremony at the Seeley Lake Community Foundation Annual Banquet Aug. 12 at the Double Arrow Lodge.
