Paws Up Foundation


The Paws Up Foundation was started by the Lipson family in 1994. Over 1.4 million dollars has been donated by the Foundation to more than 100 charities - including many based in Montana.

With donations received from The Paws Up Foundation, The International Wildlife Media Center & Film Festival is developing a Filmmaking Workshop Program for all of Missoula County 4-H which will provide young people throughout the region with exciting new skills and projects. It also gives youth a new way of looking at the world around them and developing skills that will be valuable to them for years to come.
