Greater Helena Gives 2023

Greater Helena Gives is a great way to show your support for local non-profits. Greater Helena Gives will take place in May 2023 on a TBD date. 

  • You can make a donation online here on Greater Helena Gives Day.
  • You can also make a contribution via check to Merlin CCC (Mailing address — PO Box 2034, Helena MT 59624) or on our website.
  • You can pledge to give on the Greater Helena Gives website in a creative way by selecting/entering a donation amount (whatever you’re able to do on May TBD 2023), and then choose the frequency of your donation (e.g., every two weeks, once a month, etc.) and a period of time (for 6 months, 1 year, etc.) or until a specific amount has been reached.  This way, you can set the parameters for your donation on a scale that meets your current situation and aims.
  • Alternatively, you can pledge to give on the Merlin CCC website in a similar fashion by becoming a sustaining donor.

What Your Donations Help to Support

Your tax-deductible contributions/pledges help to support our philosophy in the community programs.  Our programs are free to the public and support critical, creative thinking, the exchange of ideas, and the application of philosophy to everyday life.  More broadly, they are opportunities for people of all backgrounds and ages (from children to elders) to gather, to learn from and with one another, and to uniquely cultivate their personal and civic selves. By investing in philosophy, you are investing in community.

Investing in Philosophy by Investing in Community

We’re a Helena-based non-profit organization dedicated to enriching lives and strengthening the community and environment through philosophy.

  • spark and encourage the exchange of ideas & the fun of doing philosophy
  • promote critical, creative thought & reflection
  • cultivate “philosophical sensitivity”
  • develop our personal & civic selves
  • nurture and contribute to a sense of imagination and wonder
  • reconnect people with nature by way of doing philosophy in inspiring places
