“By what you get, you make a living; what you
give, however, makes a life.” – Arthur Ashe

In this special section, Explore Big Sky is honoring not-for-profit
organizations in our region. The idea is to remind us to give, and that
these charitable groups give their time, work and love to a cause they
believe in.
This is the second Guide to Giving nonprofit issue. We made the first
one last November to critical acclaim, and realized none of us can be
reminded too frequently that we live not to take, but to give.
“We believe in the mission,” said Eleanor Barker, executive director
for the nonprofit Children’s Museum of Bozeman. “And the reason
there are so many nonprofits in the area is that there are so many
worthy missions.”
EBS has included a number of these worthy vocations in the following
pages. Feel free to contact any of the nonprofit agencies here to
volunteer your time or to donate. As part of our community, each of
these charities needs our support.
“[Nonprofits] are a vital component to our community,” Barker said. “A conduit for community members to move the needle on issues that are important to them.”
Take your time perusing this nonprofit section. Then give your time
to one of these stellar organizations.
