Each fall, Montana’s State Employee Charitable Giving Campaign (SECGC) allows State employees to choose from over 400 nonprofit organizations to which to designate charitable donations for the following year. The 2017 Campaign begins September 25th with the annual rotunda event, at which State employees are welcome to visit with nonprofits from all over the state to meet them personally, learn about their causes, and decide where they would like their charitable contributions to go. BHWC will be represented at this event, so if you’re in Helena, please stop by and see us!
Once the campaign begins, you can visit http://secgc.mt.gov to make a donation to your non-profit organization of choice.
Please consider supporting the big hole watershed committee, SECGC #5597, with your 2017 charitable contributions.
Here’s a little more information about the Big Hole Watershed Committee (BHWC):
The Big Hole Watershed Committee, established in 1995, is a watershed group and a central hub of diverse viewpoints on resource and community concerns. We are a consensus-based organization dedicated to conservation of the Big Hole River and surrounding watershed. Our work is comprehensive, spanning floodplains, communities, wildlife, water, and fisheries. We provide education, facilitate conversations and planning for issues in our area, and put meaningful restoration work on the ground.
The Big Hole River valley is a high elevation basin at the headwaters of the Upper Missouri River. We are open lands, big sky and big mountains, free flowing river, and traditional ranching culture. Unlike most other watersheds in the West, our area remains relatively undeveloped. It is of the utmost importance to preserve the quality of the river and its watershed in order to:
- Maintain and enhance the quality of life for residents and visitors;
- Protect the river, wildlife, and habitat for future generations, including adapting for climatic resiliency; and
- Be a model of restoration, recovery, and stewardship.
