Force Multipler Montana Fund (Tax-Deductible)

Force Multiplier has identified two strong groups to support:  The Forward Montana Foundation and the Western Native Voice Education Project.  Both these funds are 501c3s and your contributions are tax deductible.  Their outreach to register voters needs early money to be successful.  

Forward Montana Foundation works to build political power in Montana’s young people. They focus on leadership development, voter education + registration (including pre-registration of 17 year-olds), issues advocacy, voter turnout. They do year-round registration using community events like music festivals to activate young voters. Largely urban, they also conduct a campus tour that includes rural tribal colleges. Their goal for this election cycle is to register 8,000 voters. 

Western Native Voice Education Project  Montana’s Native population is about 9%, evenly divided between tribal and urban areas. WNV is active on all eight Montana Indian reservations as well as major urban centers. Their focus is on promoting access to voter registration kiosks and on outreach to youth, especially those turning 18. Their goal is to register 1,000 voters this year.  Please note that only donations to the education project of the Western Native Voice group are tax-deductible.  You can find their other programs here.
