Red Lodge is extremely fortunate to have a number of nonprofit, volunteer organizations that make a significant and positive impact in our community. These 61 worthy organizations depend in large part upon donations made through the Annual Fun Run for Charities. This article describes those nonprofits that focus on preserving heritage.

Heritage Preservation: By preserving and sharing our history we can best remember our heritage. Broadway Flags brightens the Red Lodge Broadway corridor by displaying historical and patriotic flags honoring our founding immigrants, our Nation, and our visitors. Buses of Yellowstone Preservation Trust keeps local history alive with original Yellowstone Park buses and vehicles from the 1930’s and beyond. Carbon County Historical Society & Museum preserves and displays the history of Carbon County and provides educational programs and traveling exhibits for all ages. Finnish Keleva Park promotes the Finnish culture and traditions through preservation of the park and using it for family and community events.
