BILLINGS - ZooMontana has received a challenge from an anonymous donor to match all funds raised in an annual campaign, up to $125,000.
This match will be in effect through the end of the year. Executive Director Jeff Ewelt says this match will allow all donations through the end of the year to be matched dollar for dollar. "This is an incredible opportunity to make your annual, tax deductible gift go further. This wonderful donor will play a major role in the current and future momentum of ZooMontana", Ewelt said. The last time ZooMontana engaged in an annual campaign was over two years ago. Ewelt said an annual, year end campaign will become the norm, as nearly all non-profits do and will continue to play a vital role in funding the Zoo's operations such as animal feed and medical expenses.
ZooMontana is working to create a sustainable platform of funding to ensure the growth and continued momentum of the state's only zoological and botanical park.
