Raffles are fun, but gambling on the future of Montana’s water, air, and landscapes is not. That’s why investing in a 2022 Montana Futures Raffle ticket is a safe bet!

The 2023 Legislative Session will be here soon, and the Montana Futures Raffle is the main source of funding for MEIC’s lobbying efforts. Supporting MEIC is one of the best ways you can affect Montana’s environmental policies.

MEIC will be working on many critical issues such as:
  • Expanding clean energy solutions while thwarting proposals to roll them back
  • Preventing efforts to increase the use of dirty coal, promoting a healthy future for Montana’s families
  • Protecting your constitutional right to a clean and healthful environment.

2023 will mark MEIC’s 49th year of lobbying for the environment. Time after time, whether on energy policy, land use, or other environmental issues, MEIC is the most steadfast voice for strong environmental laws. Your raffle ticket purchase will help give the environment a voice at the session once again.

Montana State Law prohibits the use of credit cards for raffle ticket purchases, but you can use a debit card for an online ticket purchase, or send a check to us at PO Box 1184, Helena, MT 59624. Unfortunately, raffle ticket purchases are not tax-deductible.


Here’s how it works

Thanks to our generous donors from communities across Montana, we have incredible raffle prizes. From outdoor adventures to beautiful artwork to  high-quality outdoor gear– there’s something for everyone here! The average prize value is $145 with some worth more than $300. Over 30 prizes will be awarded!

Tickets are $100. The drawing will be held the first week of January, and we will notify you whether or not you’ve won an item. You do not need to be present to win. State law prohibits the use of credit cards for raffle ticket purchases, but you can buy online with a debit card or put a check in the mail to us with “raffle tickets” in the memo line (PO Box 1184, Helena, MT 59601).

Buying a raffle ticket makes us all winners — you, MEIC, and Montana’s environment.
