Fiscal opportunity has come knocking. Friends of Scotchman Peaks Wilderness can double their money once again, as the the Cinnabar Foundation has provided a matching grant to benefit FSPW. This year’s edition is in the amount of $3,000. For every dollar designated toward the match, up to the total of the grant, Cinnabar will match.
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.
