Washington Foundation Gives $50K Challenge Grant To The Pov

Posted: Updated:

A Missoula group is helping the Poverello Center reach its fundraising goal to build a new emergency shelter and soup kitchen.

The Dennis and Phyllis Washington Foundation issued a $50,000 challenge grant to go to the Pov's $1.6 million fundraising goal. Every dollar donated to the campaign now through November will be matched, doubling the effort. So far, the Pov's "Help Build Hope Campaign" has raised more than $1.2 million since it launched this summer.

"It's a tremendous compliment to our campaign, and I think it really speaks to the importance of the Poverello Center in the community of Missoula, that a foundation like the Washington Foundation sees the value in it, and has decided to support our effort," said Poverello Center's Executive Director, Eran Fowler Pehan. 

The Poverello Center has been working to rebuild their old and under-capacity facility for several years. To make a donation go to the Poverello Center website, mail at PO Box 7644, Missoula, MT 59807, or go to 535 Ryman Street.
