Stand up for Students
Stand Up For Students was founded in 2014 after the Great Falls Association of REALTORS® heard a presentation from the GFPS Foundation about homeless students in Great Falls. We knew we had to do something to raise awareness and help out.
Every summer we host a toiletry drive at locations throughout Great Falls and have donated more than 21,000 of these items since we started, with over 11,000 collected in 2019! Thru this toiletry drive, the generous donation will make a difference in the lives of our Great Falls students & will provide them with basic hygienic necessities.

There are 500+ homeless students in Great Falls. These students are classified as not having consistent housing, including those who lack a fixed, regular and adequate residence. They may live in vehicles, makeshift housing, shelters, motels, or in a crowded residence with other families. Their housing situations are unstable and often changing. Help us keep kids in school, provide a support system, raise awareness and find solutions to the problems.
