For the past 6 years, Griz Kidz has provided 50 tickets for each home game, free of charge, to its beneficiaries along with a Griz Kidz shirt, hat and vouchers for food at the concession stands.
More than 1,500 children have received free tickets from Griz Kidz, and with each ticket, nearly every beneficiary has received, at the very least, a Griz Kidz shirt and hat.
All Board Members are former Grizzly football players.
None of the Board Members receive compensation for their efforts and only donate their time, with Mike Rankin, Tim Polich, Bryan Tripp and Thad Huse being part of the original Board, meaning they have donated their time to Griz Kidz, and its beneficiaries, for more than 10 years.
All of the Board Members received degrees from the University of Montana, and are now professionals, who are employed in Missoula.
The following groups and programs are just some of the recipients of tickets, gear and a game day experience provided by Griz Kidz:
