Ways to support PCEC
Donate: Contributions to PCEC are tax deductible to the full extent of the law. Thanks to the financial support from people in our community, we can quickly respond to immediate threats, like the Yellowstone Gateway Mine. We are small and agile and ready to ramp up our work to rise to any occasion.
Volunteer: As a small grassroots organization we depend on support from people in our community– from IT support to office maintenance. We also want to encourage community members to be our spokespeople when meeting with elected officials. They want to hear from you!
Connect: Help us grow our work by talking to your friends. Encourage your friends and neighbors to support PCEC by donating and becoming a member. Let’s grow our community and our work together.
Support a Project:
You can also support PCEC by funding specific programs and campaigns that you care about the most. Here are projects for this year that need dedicated financial support from you.
$__________ Yellowstone Gateway Mine – PCEC is working to protect Yellowstone’s gateway from industrial mining. Your contribution to PCEC will go towards our efforts to inform, organize and mobilize the community opposition and to gain long-term protections of our public lands from mining development.
$__________ Community Anthology – We are working in partnership with Elk River Books to compile and publish an anthology of local authors and some of the West’s leading environmental voices to create a living document that can stand and speak in opposition to the misguided and shortsighted ideas being proposed by Lucky Minerals and others with potentially similar intentions.
$__________ Burlington Northern Sante Fe Railyard Cleanup – PCEC is seeking funds to hire an MSU intern to help with the research and organization of the BNSF Railyard Superfund Cleanup archive.
$__________ Healthy communities-pedestrian trails program – In promotion of healthy lifestyles and livable communities, we are raising funds to promote and educate about community trails and their benefits. This includes involvement with the Park County Growth Policy and Active Transportation Plans.
$__________ Recycling Program – PCEC is bringing back the popular “E-Waste” or electronic recycling program this spring satellite events in Wilsall and Clyde Park. We are out to raise $2,000 in member/donor matching funds to help us get foundation support for this program.
$__________ Summer — Youth program – We are partnering with Montana Wilderness Association’s wilderness walks and the USFS to develop a youth-focused hiking program (adults welcome too!) to explore critical program areas in Park County. We’ll need your support to get this off the ground!
$__________ Grizzly Bear’s in our Community — PCEC is developing a program to educate Park County about living in a community with Grizzly bears: how do we work together to protect our grizzly neighbors and the wildness that they represent.
Thank you so much for your membership and your involvement! Your generous support goes a long way to ensure a voice for the environment in Park County.
