A venture capitalist whose firm backed startups such as Google, YouTube and Instagram is donating $2 million to help Montana law enforcement officers catch people who are using the Internet to prey on children.

The Daily Inter Lake reports Mike Goguen with Sequoia Capital has committed to giving $2 million to the Montana Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force over the next five years to fund three full-time officers for the agency as well as additional training and technology.

Goguen is a part-time Whitefish resident who has donated $11 million to Two Bear Air, a Whitefish-based nonprofit that provides helicopter support for search and rescue teams. He learned about the internet crimes task force last year when Two Bear Air provided surveillance for a sting operation.
