Western Values Project
Founded in 2013 and based in Helena and Whitefish, Montana and Washington, D.C., Western Values Project brings transparency to the public lands debate. Their research team investigates the connections between powerful special interests and the politicians they seek to influence, with the intention of holding public lands decision makers at every level of government accountable. Western Values Project is a project of New Venture Fund, a 501(c)(3) public charity fiscal sponsor that provides administrative support to hosted projects — an umbrella organization that provides administrative support to non-profit advocacy organizations. Their work is backed by organizations and individuals across America that support a responsible approach to managing our nation’s public lands.
