COMMITTED TO MAKING GOOD THINGS HAPPEN..
The legacy by the late Vera Jensen will endure forever in the communities of the Mission and Jocko Valleys. By contributing her estate, Vera changed the base of opportunity for small, non-profit organizations and others to do great things in their communities.
The Lower Flathead Valley Community Foundation funds granted in excess of $100,000.00 annually – all derived from its endowment fund and investment earnings. Those dollars supplied materials and paid for the presentation of programs in local libraries for children’s summer reading activities, school playground projects, school reading programs, and student achievement activities. The Foundation has helped local communities improve facilities – the Arlee Senior Citizens Center received a new roof, the Ronan City Library built an addition, and the Leon Club House near Charlo added handicapped access.
Local Youth recreation programs such as youth baseball and American Legion baseball have improved their facilities and programs. Local historical societies, the Polson Museum, the Garden of the Rockies Museum of Ronan, and other small organizations have also benefited from the fruits of the invested funds of the Lower Flathead Valley Community Foundation.
