You can help protect the rights of people with disabilities.
Funding for advocacy is shrinking.
In Montana our population is a little over a million, yet 13.7% of Montanans could quality for our services. Our most reported issues are abuse, rights violations, and neglect. Our staff devotes their time to making impactful change for our fellow citizens. Your support could help us devote more focus into supporting students with disabilities, public advocacy, and continuing our everyday work.
The reality is the DRM does not currently receive sufficient funding to meet all requests for assistance received from Montanans with disabilities. Unfortunately, the need for advocacy outweighs the funds that we do have.
Ways you can help:
We are selling raffle tickets to raise money until September 14, 2018. There are prizes ranging from a jersey, to a vacation package including lodging, and adventure tickets!

You must register your vehicle annually to have sponsored plates. The cost of the plates and renewing them each year includes a donation that goes directly to the sponsoring organization. By purchasing these plates, people show their support for an organization and make a financial contribution to its work. https://dojmt.gov/media-item/disability-rights-montana/
How to Purchase and Renew Sponsored Plates with No Eligibility Requirements
- An individual or business who owns a passenger car, pickup, van, sport utility vehicle, motor home, large truck or bus that is registered in Montana may choose to display most sponsored plates. Sponsored plates are available for trailers.
- There is no special process to apply for or renew most sponsored plates. The county treasurer issues or renews the plates when you pay the applicable vehicle registration fees and any special license plate fees.
