Conservation is about people working together to protect habitat for birds, other wildlife and a legacy for the future.
2016 marks Montana Audubon’s 40th year at the vanguard of wildlife conservation in Montana. We’ve been a watchdog in the state legislature for much of that time, defending important environmental laws and helping introduce bills that now protect the birds and other wildlife we all cherish.
Today, the need for Montana Audubon’s trusted conservation voice and collaborative, science-based approach is as critical as ever. We’ve now established the Montana Audubon Annual Conservation Fund as a yearly means for you to help sustain our organization, with a focus on our fixed expenses.
As you can imagine, creating a future for Montana’s birds and other wildlife requires more than on-the-ground work; Montana Audubon has significant operational costs related to office infrastructure, travel, technology upgrades, communications and much more. The reality is that to help birds, these day-to-day background expenses are just as important to meet as those specific to our education and habitat conservation programs.
In addition to becoming a Montana Audubon member, your support of the Annual Conservation Fund will help sustain the overall health of our organization, now and in the future, so we can confront the many emerging threats facing birds and other wildlife – Please give to the Montana Audubon Annual Conservation Fund today. Thank you!
Montana Audubon participates in “Montana Shares”– a partnership of Montana-based nonprofits devoted to improving the quality of life across big sky country through workplace charitable giving campaigns. Montana Shares has raised over 3 million dollars for Montana nonprofits since 1988, and over 80,000 Montanans (including those in all state and federal offices; city, county and school districts in the major communities; public and private universities and colleges; and many hospitals, healthcare clinics and businesses) are currently offered Montana Shares giving opportunities at their place of employment. Cooperative fundraising through workplace giving is a low-cost, effective way for Montana Audubon to raise needed funds, helping to diversify funding sources, strengthen its financial stability, and more effectively serve the people of Montana.
If you have the opportunity at your workplace, please consider giving to Montana Audubon!
