More Info & Resources


Proceeds from our inaugural fundraising event were distributed among the following beneficiaries:

Suffer Out Loud

Suffer Out Loud is a Bozeman-based non-profit, serving statewide, committed to reducing suicide rates by working with the community to destigmatize mental health, breaking down barriers to mental health care access, and connecting Montanans to the resources they need and deserve. We do this through our mental health care scholarships (which open on the 3rd Friday of every month), monthly community workshops that provide a safe space to discuss mental health struggles and celebrate self-care, and free resource distribution including crisis resources. For the last 30 years, Montana has ranked top 5 for suicides in the nation. Nobody should have to suffer in silence. Everyone deserves the help they need because mental health is health.

Help Center, Inc.

Serving clients in Southwest Montana, Help Center, Inc. provides crisis counseling, advocacy, information, outreach, and support to clientele in a safe, confidential environment. The intent is to assist clients in gaining insight, clarity, empowerment, client centered solutions and life improvement in the wake of life’s difficulties and in the aftermath of traumatic events.

Bridger Ski Foundation

Bridger Ski Foundation (BSF) is a nonprofit community ski organization based in Bozeman, Montana. We provide and fund educational and competitive programs for all ages, year round, in Nordic, Alpine, Freeskiing, Freestyle, Freeride, and Snowboarding. BSF also grooms an incredible network of community Nordic ski trails for the public in Bozeman.
Our programs and trails are open to everyone, and we strive to keep skiing affordable through fundraising, scholarships, financial aid, open trail access, and equipment assistance. In 2015, BSF became a Gold Certified Club, the highest recognition given by U.S. Ski & Snow­board; in 2019, they once again earned that designation through the recertification process.  

Scholarships for Ski Passes

The Milton Menasco Foundation is also working on developing a scholarship program for ski passes at local ski hills, starting with Bridger Bowl and Showdown. We hope to eventually expand this program to ski hills across the state of Montana.
