Cinnabar Matching Grant

Posted on Wednesday, September 28th, 2011 by »

Your donation can help the Friends of Scotchman Peaks Wilderness twice!!  Contribute now and we will receive double the amount you send.

Once again, the Cinnabar Foundation has provided a matching grant to benefit our efforts to protect and preserve the Scotchmans. Cinnabar will match every dollar donated up to the total of the grant, $3,000; but we don’t get the money from Cinnabar until we have reached that amount.

So far we have raised just over $1,800; we hope you will help us to finish raising the total amount need to receive the matching funds.

The Cinnabar Foundation, Montana’s homegrown conservation fund, was established in 1983 Len and Sandy Sargent. Due to their vision and generosity, and the philanthropy of others (that would be our generous Friends, in this case), the Foundation provides support  to nonprofit organizations and programs engaged in environmental advocacy, conservation education, and research, as well as the preservation of open space, free-flowing streams, and public access in Montana and the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem.

The money raised from the grant and its matches go into the FSPW general fund, helping us to continue our education, outreach and stewardship efforts on behalf of the 88,000 roadless acres that is the proposed Scotchman Peaks Wilderness. Your tax deductible donation can be sent to:

Thank You!!
