Rosie Goldich is the Development Manager at United Way of Missoula County. She works with local Missoula area businesses and organizations to support education, health and financial stability initiatives that make Missoula a better place to live for all. Her non-profit career began when she interned at Habitat for Humanity in Shanghai during college, working on resource development and translation. After earning her B.A. in Economics from Clark University, Rosie moved to Montana to serve as an AmeriCorps VISTA, quickly fell in love with the last best place, and hasn't looked back. Before working at United Way of Missoula County, she gained experience in project management in the areas of community and rural economic development, local food systems, and grant writing. In 2017, Rosie was named one of Forward Montana Foundation's 25 under 25. She is also a graduate of the Leadership Flathead Reservation Class of 2019. Rosie is also a member of the Women's Giving Circle, a philanthropic group that combines resources for local Missoula County non-profit organizations.
Rosie was born and raised in Eastern Connecticut. After living in Havre and Polson, she has landed (for now) in Missoula. When she's not working, you can find her at the nearest trivia night, listening to a podcast, or hiking in the mountains. Or petting a dog. She is passionate about intersectional feminism, social determinants of health, and dirty chai lattes.
