Your chance to win… and help Montana’s environment!


MEIC’s 2017 lobbying team. From left to right: Brian Fadie, Jim Jensen, Anne Hedges, and Derf Johnson.

Invest in Montana’s future! Here’s your chance to participate in a special event: the 2016 Montana Futures Raffle. The 2017 legislative session will be here soon, and the Montana Futures Raffle is the main source of funding for MEIC’s lobbying efforts. Supporting MEIC is one of the best ways you can affect Montana’s environmental policies.

MEIC will be working on many critical issues such as challenging attempts to put the Smith River mine on a fast track… expanding clean energy solutions while thwarting proposals to roll them back… preventing efforts to increase the use of dirty coal… promoting a healthy future for Montana’s families… and protecting the Constitution’s fundamental right to a clean and healthful environment.

MEIC needs to be at the Capitol presenting a strong voice for the environment, as it has been every session since 1974. YOU can help!

Here’s how it works:

If you have purchased raffle tickets in the past, you’ll notice something new. We decided it was time for a change and have lowered the cost per raffle ticket, allowing more people to join in the fun, while keeping our top quality prizes. We have one grand prize, and four fantastic prize packages.

Tickets are just $25 each – or 5 for $100. That’s one extra chance to win for free!

The drawing will be held on January 2, 2017, and we will contact you to let you know if you won a prize. You do not need to be present to win.

Buying raffle tickets makes us all winners – you, MEIC, and Montana’s environment. Send in the form below today!

Thank you to all the raffle prize donors! We appreciate their generosity, and hope you will support them when you can.

The 2016 Imperial 6 Inflatable SUP donated by NRS. The Imperial is NRS’s most versatile all-around board for fitness paddling, touring, or light river running.

Includes pump, interchangeable fins, and carry/storage backpack.
