The generous matching grants from David Dayton and Weston Hoard have been met, and to get us to the finish line, MCEA board member and former Minnesota State Auditor Rebecca Otto and her husband Shawn Otto, author of The War on Science, have generously put up our final Give to the Max Day match. Another $10,000 match is live — that means you still have time to double your impact!

Update: We met the Otto match. Timothy B Nelson of Lutsen has stepped up with a $5000 match!

“MCEA is the premiere environmental protection organization in the state of Minnesota. They've been around a long time working on every major issue. I remember when MCEA, then called Project Environment, literally needed help licking stamps. They've come a long way.”- David Dayton

For nearly 50 years, we’ve worked in the courts, at the legislature, and with public agencies to enact, strengthen, and enforce smart environmental laws. MCEA is the leading nonprofit legal voice protecting Minnesota’s people and environment, with deep organizational expertise.

Our team includes some of the foremost environmental law and policy professionals in the state. Our in-house lawyers and policy experts uniquely position us to stand up for Minnesota’s people, climate, and environment.

MCEA doesn’t just protect pristine wild places, we fight for every Minnesotan’s right to clean air and drinkable water, from North Minneapolis to the Fond du Lac Reservation; from Lake Superior to Limbo Creek.

Why support MCEA? Every donation strengthens our team as we head into a critical year for our environment. Whether its the long awaited contested case hearing on PolyMet’s reckless mine proposal, or pushing forward an innovative climate plan at the Minnesota legislature, MCEA’s work - and your gift today - will have a lasting impact. MCEA is here to stand up for downstream and unjustly treated communities and our environment against corporate polluters.
