Our monthly gatherings are designed to raise awareness around issues of critical importance in our community while also having the opportunity to meet other women and enjoy some social time over your favorite drink.
We invite nonprofits and other community organizations to present to the Matriarch group in this casual setting.
If you are interested in having your group present at one of our monthly gatherings, please contact us.
Interested in attending a Montana Matriarch gathering, but not sure what to expect?
Let us tell you more about it!
Montana Matriarch gatherings are open to all those who identify as women and would like an opportunity to meet other women from the community who share their values. Unless otherwise noted, gatherings are held at Uncorked Wine Bar in Livingston, Montana, and a portion of the proceeds from the evening are contributed to the Montana Matriarch Fund. We may also occasionally use our gatherings to serve as a supply drive for local organizations in need, so keep your eyes peeled for those opportunities as well!
Gatherings begin at 6:00 pm. When you arrive you’ll be greeted, asked to make a name tag and encouraged to order a beverage of your choice. If you are a new member make sure to ask for a free drink token, otherwise you are responsible for purchasing your beverage.
Once everyone has arrived and settled in, you will have an opportunity to hear from our Montana Matriarch Chairs, who will provide updates on membership, fund development, and upcoming opportunities to engage in the community. We will then introduce a featured nonprofit guest, who will take a few moments to share about the great work they are doing in our community and answer questions about their efforts.
Following these announcements, we will provide all in attendance with an opportunity to engage in a facilitated dialogue. You will be encouraged to meet new people, share more about your interests, and discuss what matters most to you in our community.
These structured portions of our gatherings generally last 30-45 minutes, after which women are invited to stay and socialize. You can also use this time to share your ideas with us, ask questions, and sign-up for a membership if you’d like.
These gatherings are low-key and there is no pressure on you! We have women attend solo and we have women who attend with their friends. You can participate to whatever extent you’d like to, and you are welcome to come and go at any time!
We will host regular service projects in and around the community. Past service projects include the Spread the Warmth Winter Clothing Drive. If your organization or group has a need for volunteers or want to discuss coordinating a service project with Montana Matriarch, please contact us.
