About AERO – Alternative Energy Resources Organization
The mission of AERO is to empower communities to nurture and promote a more sustainable Montana. We envision a future where all Montanans have access to clean energy, healthy food, sustainable agriculture, and a network that provides leadership, resources and advocacy.
The state of Montana.
Project / Needs
AERO has many ongoing programs, including our AbundantMontana.Org directory, our long-running directory of local food and sustainable agriculture listings and opportunities across the state. We are always in need of unrestricted funding to pursue more creative, non-grant based opportunities and programs.
AERO is a membership based organization and so much of our funding comes from members who value our work and the resources we offer. We fundraise through member renewals and a large End of Year Campaign. We also seek and receive grants from a variety of sources, including recent successful funding from the USDA, Montana Department of Agriculture Growth through Agriculture Grant, the High Stakes Foundation, and the Big Sky Institute for the Advancement of Nonprofits.
How will the funds be used
Largely for operational costs.
