As of September 17, contributions toward a matching grant offered by Cinnabar Foundation (www.thecinnabarfoundation.org) stands at almost $2600. Donors to our group can double their money by contributing now and taking advantage of this match from Cinnabar.

Cinnabar, a home-grown Montana 501c3 non-profit, has been part of the conservation movement in the Northwest since 1983, when it was begun by Sandy and Len Sargent. They were and Cinnabar continues to be stalwart supporters of environmental and conservation organizations since 1969. Cinnabar has supported Friends of Scotchman Peaks Wilderness in many ways.

A donation to FSPW now helps Cinnabar help us to move forward with our continuing campaign to achieve wilderness status for the beautiful Scotchman Peaks of northern Idaho and western Montana.
