Our mission is to support MontanaPBS through advocacy, community engagement and fundraising.
From the Latin word advocatia meaning to summon, call to one’s aid. Advocacy is the public support for or recommendation of a particular cause or policy.
Community engagement refers to the process by which community benefit organizations and individuals build ongoing, permanent relationships for the purpose of applying a collective vision for the benefit of a community.
Fundraising or fund raising (also known as "development") is the process of soliciting and gathering voluntary contributions of money or other resources, by requesting donations from individuals, businesses, charitable foundations, or governmental agencies.
