WHAT IS OLD BILL’S?
The first event of its kind in the nation, the idea for Old Bill’s Fun Run for Charities came from an anonymous couple affectionately known as Mr. and Mrs. Old Bill. Their vision was to expand the charitable pie in Jackson Hole by encouraging the entire community to participate in philanthropy. In the months leading up to the event, local donors make gifts of all sizes to their favorite causes.
One of the most innovative fundraisers in the nation, Old Bill’s Fun Run is also one of the most successful. In 2019, the event raised $14,381,191 from 4,012 donors. Old Bill’s has brought an astounding $173 million philanthropic dollars to our community. These funds are busy feeding the hungry, supporting the sick and elderly, teaching kids to read, protecting wildlife, building affordable housing, enriching our lives through the arts and touching the lives of everyone in Teton County.
Old Bill’s makes giving easy as donors need only fill out one form and write one check to give to as many local organizations as they like.
OLD BILL’S FUN RUN 2020
The 24th annual, community-wide fundraiser, Old Bill’s Fun Run, will take place this summer with considerable event modifications in response to COVID-19. To ensure the safety and welfare of the Jackson community, the Community Foundation has reimagined the “Run Day” component of Old Bill’s, which draws more than 3,500 people to the Town Square every September.
