Member Update – November 2013
Greetings Members of Trust Montana,
Thank you for taking the time to check out what we’re up to. This past year, we have continued to lay the groundwork for our land stewardship work, worked on building the coalition, and will soon close the deal on Trust Montana’s first piece of property to be protected in perpetuity.
We thank you all for your crucial support in this nascent phase. We believe that Trust Montana will grow to be an important voice for land stewardship and a beacon of cooperation among conservationists, ag land preservationists, historical preservationists, and affordable housing advocates.
As we move forward, we ask for your continued support. Coalition building is a challenge, especially across fields as diverse as those we seek for this collaboration. If you know of a group or have a colleague who may be interested in what we are doing, let us know. If you are interested in becoming more involved and helping shape Trust Montana as it continues to grow, please get in touch about joining as a board member.
President, Trust Montana Board of Directors
Trust Montana will soon acquire its first piece of land as a Community Land Trust in Red Lodge, MT.
Non-Profit 501(C)(3) Status
Trust Montana, Inc. originally submitted our 501(c)(3) application to the IRS in June of 2012. This past spring, we received a request for additional information from the IRS. The information request was completed by NMCDC staff and sent back to our contact in mid-October. As we await our IRS determination, we will continue to function under the fiscal sponsorship of NeighborWorks Montana.
