The Markovich family believes that being part of the communities in which they operate is an integral part of Summit’s success. “You can’t just take from the community as a business owner, you have the responsibility to give back” states Dale Markovich Owner & CEO of Summit Beverage. Summit has made a financial impact on over 100 organizations in Western Montana, which makes Summit and its employees feel vested in the community.

The foundation pillars are as follows:

Education & Arts: Investing in organizations that promote education and access to arts. We believe these are fundamental tools in cultivating thriving young adult.

Athletics: Through athletic scholarships we promote drive, teamwork, ambition, and talent in our youth.

Community Service: Our communities in which we live is what brings us all together. Our foundation invests in organizations that provide beautification and focus on conservation efforts within our communities.

Health & Hunger: We target programs that assist in eliminating community hunger, in particular child hunger. Medical and public safety services are a crucial backbone in our community that we focus on and support.

We will continue to expand our reach to other organizations in the future. We applaud and encourage other businesses to get involved and make a difference!
