New community asset for Seeley Lake

The Seeley Lake Community Foundation is excited to announce we'll be acquiring the Deer Country Quilts building, in downtown Seeley Lake! We're grateful for this opportunity, thanks in part to the generosity of the Rose family, to creatively provide a resource for our community. Look for more updates in the coming months, as we explore a best fit for this beautiful building!

Fire and Ice in August

It was great to see friends old and new at the 16th annual 'Fire and Ice' SLCF banquet at Double Arrow Resort. A sold-out crowd of 120 attendees shared in the fun, delicious food, and enthusiasm throughout the evening's auction. Thank you to everyone who helped make the night a success, raising funds to support our mission and programs for the upcoming year!

Change Your Pace Challenge raises over $64,000

This year, 17 local organizations raised over $64,000 collectively through our Change Your Pace Challenge! Over $15,000 of those contributions came in for the CYP Match Fund, which helped grow the power of donations to participating organizations. Here, SLCF executive director Claire Muller and one of the CYP Challenge corporate sponsors, Energy Partners manager Michael Henry, pose with the 2018 total!


New Executive Director

Claire Muller began with the Seeley Lake Community Foundation in May 2018.

Her professional experience in collaboration and leadership, her academic studies in nonprofit management, and her skills at relationship building set the stage for community-wide enhancements.

Claire enjoys recreation and quiet time in wild places. The opportunity to enhance the quality of life and long-term prosperity of a small Montana town in such a beautiful setting appeals to Claire, and she looks forward to getting to know the people in this amazing place.

SLCF President A. Lee Boman states, “We're pleased to have someone with Claire’s level of energy and leadership helping build sustainable benefits for all.”
