Citizens works to equip you and decision-makers with the policy research and practical tools you need to advance long-term solutions to our valley’s significant challenges. We have a long and successful history of encouraging essential grassroots neighborhood leadership in our region. We’ve found we can be most effective by providing experienced guidance and context for these groups while allowing them to be the faces at the forefront of the issue affecting their neighboorhood. We can also assist these groups in fundraising by acting as their Fiscal Sponsor, which allows their donations to be tax-deductible by using our non-profit status.
Neighboorhood groups we are currently supporting include:
West Glacier Community Preservation Association is a newly formed neighborhood group who are working to better organize in response to growing development pressures in the Glacier National Park western entrance corridor.
Water for Flathead’s Future is a citizens group that advocates sustainable use of our local water resources for all users. This valley-wide effort seeks to address impacts from the first proposed industrial-scale water-bottling plant in the Flathead.
