An investment in your community.
We partner with local charities, schools and organizations to improve and support the places we call home. We made financial contributions to crucial emergency systems like food banks, volunteer fire departments, hospitals, and search and rescue. We earned high marks in educational support by investing in scholarships, Easy Access* Internet classes, ETC* teacher training opportunities, and EEE* technology equipment donations. By choosing Blackfoot, you not only bring advanced technology home. You bring good things to your hometown.
*Easy Access – Blackfoot and WaterColor Computer Training tour to many of the Cooperative communities in the Fall and Spring, providing basic and advanced Internet training.
*Education Technology Conference (ETC ) – Annual technology conference funded by Blackfoot for Cooperative teachers.
*Electronic Education Equipment (EEE) program – Blackfoot, Missoula Electric and Energy Partners partner each year to donate $24,000 in technology equipment to rural schools.
