Help Those Affected by Flooding in Montana Communities

June 13, 2022

Local funds have been established to support those affected by flooding in Montana communities.

Governor Greg Gianforte has declared a statewide disaster as many Montana communities are currently experiencing severe flooding from multiple rivers and creeks, including the Yellowstone River, Rock Creek, Boulder River, and the Gallatin River. Flood warnings are in place for additional communities.

Local community foundations and community organizations have established funds to assist communities affected by the flooding. Your donation will help provide much-needed support to these communities as they react, recover, and rebuild.

  • Southwest Montana Flood Relief Fund (Greater Gallatin United Way and Park County Community Foundation): Supports communities affected by the severe flooding in Park County, Madison County and other areas of Southwest Montana. The funding will provide support for immediate needs and will also help with clean-up and rebuilding efforts. Donate here. Or you can donate by texting Flood22 to 41444.
