Black Diamond Causes

Since 2012 we have begun donating 1% of our “gross profits” to non-profit organizations, before wages or profits are distributed, and we have cumulatively donated over thousands of dollars to causes listed below (listed as “the most recent” first). We hope to grow this list and our amounts exponentially as our company grows. Additionally, our owners and employees also give even MORE generously of their personal paychecks to non-profits and churches independently of this corporate effort. If you would like to have your organization considered for support, please contact us for information on how to become a beneficiary, in general, the missions of the organizations must agree with the morals and principles of the ownership at Black Diamond Mortgage Corporation.

 

Special Olympics MT

For January – February 2014, Black Diamond Mortgage Corporation is supporting Special Olympics Montana by having our employees participate in the Winter Carnival “Penguin Plunge!” Black Diamond Mortgage will pay the required support amount for our employees to participate, but we are hoping that by teaming with our past clients, friends and business partners, we can raise dramatically more $$ in exchange for Dave and Jessica jumping into ice-cold water on a day where the forecast is for about 10 degrees! Please pledge your support today and make your check payable to Special Olympics Montana and notify our office before Thursday, 2/6/2014 and have your contribution arrive by then. How about we raise $1000 and maybe you can help us reach that goal by contributing $50? $100? We look forward to your support and will post a photo of our plunge to our Facebook page on Saturday!

 

 

Salvation Army

For December 2013- we raised money and bought Christmas gifts for kids who otherwise could not afford them for the Salvation Army – “Angel Tree” as part of an effort through the Flathead Area Young Professionals. We also sponsored children through a separate effort from the Ray of Hope.

 

 

Flathead Spay and Neuter Task Force

In November of 2013, we contributed to the Flathead Spay and Neuter Task Force ( http://www.flatheadspayneuter.org/ ), in honor of a wonderful Realtor colleague who passed away this last Fall and this is a non-profit organization that she loved. “Respect for life. Reverse universal acceptance of killing as a solution to pet overpopulation, using low-cost spay and neuter technology, education and community involvement. Goal: To bring the community together in ending pet overpopulation. We will provide for the sterilization of companion animals and will strive to promote responsible pet ownership.’

 

In October of 2013, Black Diamond Mortgage Corporation supported fundraising efforts from Keller Williams Realty for the Ray of Hope in Kalispell, MT ( http://www.arayofhopemontana.com/ ) . – “A Hand Up.. Not a Hand Out.”

 

In October of 2013, we supported a missionary outreach of a friend we met through the Flathead Area Young Professionals. Amanda Kirkpatrick went to Nepal with Project Mountain Child ( http://mountainchild.org/ ) – “Carrying hope to the children of the Himalayas.” We were thrilled at her willingness to travel to Nepal and to be able to help!

In August 2013, we supported the Hope Pregnancy Center, ( http://www.hopepregmin.org/ ). “The mission of Hope Pregnancy Ministries is to honor Christ by providing an alternative to abortion through life affirming education and intervention, offering help and hope to women in need.”

In the Spring / Summer of 2013 we supported Jacob DeNeui and his trip to Nepal with the Venture Church in an effort to share the gospel with residents of the Town of Gosaikunda. ( http://venturechurch.us/ministries/nepal-2013/ )

For March and April 2013, Black Diamond Mortgage Corporation supported the Gateway to Glacier Trail with 1% of our profits.

They are a non-profit citizens’ organization with a goal to build a bicycle/pedestrian path stretching from Badrock Canyon to West Glacier, Montana. The purpose of this path is to create a safe zone along US Highway 2 for bicycles and pedestrians.  This will be a long-awaited connection between the Flathead Valley and Glacier National Park.
