About Angel Fund
Angel Fund helps K-12 Helena School District children (who qualify for free/reduced lunch) with clothing, shoes, winter outerwear, backpacks, school supplies, field trip fees and other required items to be successful in the classroom. We also award Montana post-secondary scholarships to deserving graduates of Access to Success, Capital HS, Helena HS and Pupils in Alternative learning based on financial need, academic success and a commitment to “pay it forward” in the future.
Project / Needs
We will begin our 12th summer organizing “Stuff the Bus” whereby 70 churches and businesses throughout Helena collect school supplies for kids in need. We also help all smaller school districts around Helena to gather supplies for their students in need.
We send out annual fundraising cards to all past donors each fall and others on our mailing list. Grants are written each spring to encourage Foundations to donate to Angel Fund and the many children we help. We hold fundraising opportunities in Helena that highlight nonprofits throughout the calendar year.
How will the funds be used
We will help 800+ students this fall needing school clothes, shoes and other required items to be successful in the classroom. We have spent $103,000 since October 1 that have gone directly for students in need. We also awarded 15 scholarships for another $15,000 last fall to help students with their first year of college. Every dollar counts!
