Thank you for your support for Give Local Helena 2016! You matter and the Helena community matters. Through your support and donations our great nonprofit community can thrive. Thank you again for making this day possible!
The Give Local Helena program was one of many Give Local programs across our nation ready to create BIG impacts in our communities. Beginning around 8:15 on May 3rd, Kimbia, the Give Local online platform provider and organizer of Give Local America, began experiencing technical challenges due to the high levels of online traffic. The strong effort to support local nonprofits in many communities across our great country led to a system crash. These issues affected every Give Local site across the country.
Helena Area Community Foundation sincerely apologizes to donors, nonprofits, and sponsors who participated in, or attempted to participate in, Give Local Helena on May 3rd and experienced technical issues. While Kimbia continues to work to resolve these issues, the ultimate and unfortunate result is that many people who have tried to make online donations through this site were unable to do so.
We strongly encourage anyone who was unable to make an online donation through the Give Local Helena site to instead make a donation directly to the nonprofit or nonprofits they wish to support.
Again, we sincerely apologize and thank you for your support of philanthropy in our community.
Your efforts to create a strong and vibrant community in Helena are inspiring.
Thank you for being part of what makes Helena such a great place to live and work.
