Harris Financial was a proud sponsor of the 2023 Great Fish Challenge, hosted by the Whitefish Community Foundation! This annual fundraiser raises awareness and funds for non-profits all over the Flathead Valley!
Not only was Harris Financial a sponsor, but we are chose to lead by example and started the challenge with a gift of $3,000 to Code Girls United!
This incredible nonprofit aims to empower young girls (4th through 8th grade) in their future careers by offering free education in computer coding and STEM fields.

Halfway through the Great Fish Challenge, we wanted to celebrate generosity and continue leading by example. Harris Financial donated $3,000 to the Northwest Montana Veterans Food Pantry! NWMTVFP is dedicated to supporting homeless, low-income, and at-risk veterans and their families in our community, and we are thrilled to stand alongside them for American bravery and sacrifice.
To end the challenge, we donated $3,000 to the Child Life program at Logan Health Children's! Child Life is amazing – they put pediatric healthcare specialists in children’s hospitals all over the country to help young patients and their families cope effectively with hospitalization. Whether it’s using marshmallows and red corn syrup to teach a kid about their blood or running Buzz Lightyear through a miniature MRI machine, Child Life is creating better patient outcomes and happier kids - we couldn't think of a much better cause to support at the end of Great Fish!
