Community Service touches the lives of everyone where they work, play, and live. Despite our individual differences, we are linked by common interests to do more for the places we call home. The Foundation invests in organizations that fortify this connection.
The Dennis and Phyllis Washington Foundation has been a tireless supporter of Montana Special Olympics for many years.
Special Olympics provides year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes, and their community. Special Olympics Montana offers training and competition opportunities in a variety of summer and winter sports including gymnastics, basketball, equestrian competition, snow-boarding, as well as alpine and cross-country skiing.
What began as a vision to inspire young people has transformed into a world-class youth camp. Dennis Washington donated the Washington Family Ranch to Young Life in 1997, as a facility for its youth summer camp ministry. Washington Family Ranch is the largest of Young Life’s thirty-two camps worldwide. Young Life is a non-denominational, Christian organization committed to impacting kids’ lives and preparing them for the future.
Each summer over 8,000 thousand of middle school and teenage campers come from all over the country to the Washington Family Ranch for “the best week of their lives.” Washington Family Ranch offers an unparalleled setting for summer camps filled with recreational facilities ranging from skate parks, to zip lines, to an incredible water slide and swimming pool.
The mission of the YMCA is “To put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind, and body for all.” Through effective board, staff and volunteer leadership, the YMCA achieves this mission through collaborations with other community institutions and civic groups. The YMCA provides human services such as job training, teen leadership opportunities, volunteer opportunities and social opportunities for seniors. Their goal is to provide quality programs which enhance the mind, body, and spirit of individuals, families and the communities in which they serve.
The mission of the Boys and Girls Clubs is to inspire and guide all young people to develop positive values and realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens through quality out of school time programming.
