Blackfoot’s vision is to enrich the lives of our customers, owners and employees. Our focus is to help make the communities we serve better places to live, learn and thrive. We annually support community causes and events that matter to you, and initiatives that enhance educational programs for all ages – we work hard to deliver value to our customers each day.
Blackfoot in Your Community
Of all the connections Blackfoot makes, the human ones matter most. We believe we’re not just your provider, we’re also your neighbor. That’s why we annually invest in countless programs and initiatives to give back to our communities.
Blackfoot’s support touches a wide range of community causes, including Special Olympics Montana, American Cancer Society Relays for Life, United Way, local food banks, 4-H clubs, rodeos, parades, community celebrations, fundraisers, sporting activities, arts and music, civic organizations and many more.
We are proud to be an active member of many local area Chambers of Commerce and economic partnerships. Blackfoot was also honored to receive the Missoula Chamber of Commerce’s “Circle of Excellence” award in 2014 in recognition of our local stewardship and community involvement.
Blackfoot in Education
Blackfoot’s community support motto is “Giving Back. Looking Ahead.” We look for ways to invest in the long-term success of our communities. Blackfoot supports local schools, provides annual scholarships and gives to several initiatives that enhance educational programs for all ages. Each year, Blackfoot contributes over $75,000 to educational endeavors. Looking ahead, we are excited to see the possibilities the future holds for today’s students.
Our support includes investments in three key areas: Scholarships, Technology in Education and Member Learning. Click below to learn more.
