Charitable Donation

As always, a portion of our conference proceeds will be donated to a local charity. The Glacier National Park CRNA 2021 conference will benefit the Montana Hope Project

The Montana Hope Project began in 1984 by Montana Highway Patrol Officers who personally funded wishes to critically ill children for a trip to Glacier National Park. This charitable act has now grown into a non-profit charity of the Montana State Troopers which grants hundreds of wishes to children living with critical illnesses every year. 100% of donations go toward granting the wishes of our Children of Hope. The Hope Project does not receive tax support and is not associated with any national wish-granting organization.
