philanthropic impact possible

Special thanks to First National Bank, First Western Trust, Eide Bailly, Aqua-Hot, Bruce and Muriel Hach, and EKS&H for your lead sponsorship last year.

 From our 2018 attendees:

“The socialization aspects were very enjoyable. It’s not everyday that you see 750 of the community’s philanthropic leaders together at once.” 

“A room full of visionary, cooperative, philanthropic people who have worked together for generations to make our region a positive place to live and work; it's inspiring to see this many caring people come together.” 

 “It's always good to have focused time to pause and think about philanthropy. I really enjoyed hearing the stories about the two families that won the awards because it makes me think about what legacy I want our family to have.”

“Connecting with people and learning about some of the really neat things happening in our community. There is so much going on that we often don't hear about.”

“Interacting with others that one knows but rarely sees, meeting new people that are interested in a foundation that does so much for not just an area, but a broader community in total...’a sharing of minds’ for a greater benefit.”
