Big Hearts under the Big Sky is a program started by the Montana Outfitters and Guides Association (MOGA). MOGA places children diagnosed with life threatening illness, women suffering from breast cancer and military veterans who have provided extraordinary service to our country, on fully guided and outfitted trips at no charge.
To meet the mission of the Big Hearts program, we partner with several well-known national charities. These MOGA partners preform a vital function of identifying qualified persons who desire and will benefit from an outfitted adventure trip of a lifetime in Montana. MOGA works to match their needs with the right outfitters and guides to fulfill their dreams. In some cases our partners may also play an equally important role in helping execute the trip.
Service to Veterans - BHUBS works closely with several national organizations to provide Montana outdoor adventures to individuals from across the nation who have provided extraordinary military service. Among our partners are Wounded Warrior Project, Honored American Veterans and Operation Never Forgotten.
MOGA members have a long history of providing outfitted experiences to these types of organizations. To ensure a continued supply of high quality outfitted hunting, fishing and outdoor trips, MOGA has launched an aggressive fund raising campaign through “Big Hearts under the Big Sky”. All donations are tax-deductible and there proceeds are placed in the Association’s 501 (c) (3) Educational Institute arm of the Montana Outfitters and Guides Association (EIN # 84-1424925). The fund raising campaign relies on sponsorships, cash donations, auction item donations and contributions to an Endowment; the goal is to create long term, sustainable relationship with our partner organizations.
