In July of 2017, Missoula-based Logjam Presents opened the new KettleHouse Amphitheater, an outdoor concert venue located on the banks of the majestic Blackfoot River. As part of our commitment to our new home along the Blackfoot, the newly created Logjam Foundation, the charitable arm of Logjam Presents, and Montana Trout Unlimited have formed the Blackfoot River Fund — a partnership dedicated to conserving and protecting the Blackfoot River.
Role of the Logjam Foundation. The Logjam Foundation will 1) donate $1.00 dollar from each ticket sold to concerts at the KettleHouse Amphitheater, 2) contribute an amount equal to five percent of gross bar sales at the KettleHouse Amphitheater, 3) donate 100 percent of the profit from all Blackfoot River Fund merchandise and 4) provide interested concert goers the opportunity to give directly. It is the goal of the Logjam Foundation to raise over $100,000 during the 2018 summer concert season.
Role of Montana Trout Unlimited. Montana Trout Unlimited will serve as the administrator of the Blackfoot River Fund. In this role, MTU will direct how the funds are allocated and launch specific Blackfoot River initiatives. MTU will ensure that 100 percent of the funds go to the conservation and preservation of the Blackfoot River.
Throughout the 2018 concert season, the partnership will outline the specific programs and finances of the Blackfoot River Fund. To stay informed on the program by checking in on the Blackfoot River Fund webpage.
About the Logjam Foundation. The newly formed Logjam Foundation has been created to serve as the charitable wing of Missoula-based entertainment company Logjam Presents. The mission of the Logjam Foundation is to cultivate and incubate arts and culture in the Missoula community. Additionally, the Logjam Foundation is committed to the sustainability of the community in which it operates. Logjam Presents appreciates the strong support of Missoulians for live music and that they work hard for the money required to support live music. As a result, Logjam feels it is important to reinvest proceeds earned from our concerts back into the community to incubate a strong arts culture and to help maintain a sustainable environment for Missoula.
