Montana Conservation Voters Education Fund (MCVEF) is a non-profit organization dedicated to involving citizens in our democratic process.

MCVEF was founded in 1999 by a steering committee of dedicated leaders and staff from groups seeking a response to attacks on environmental laws in the state.

Today, MCVEF shines a spotlight on the votes and actions of elected officials – from the Courthouse to Congress – affecting clean air and water, open spaces, wildlife, and public health. MCVEF works for responsible stewardship of Montana’s incredible natural assets by providing voter participation services to over 35,000 conservationists.

Organizational Structure

Board of Directors: A statewide board provides diversity, expertise, and energy to govern the organization and represent their communities.

Staff: These professionals and technical support people work for conservation every day from MCVEF’s three offices.

Community Chapters: For grassroots action and accountability work with legislative and local elected officials, MCVEF has chapters in Flathead, Gallatin-Park, Missoula, and Yellowstone Counties, and member teams in other communities.
