Save Minnesota Fundraising Reaches $1,079,000


PERM (Proper Economic Resource Management) is a non-profit conservation club dedicated to promoting balanced solutions to natural resource management issues. The campaign to "Save Minnesota" was initiated by Bud Grant and PERM. A goal of $1.5 million was set to protect the interests of sportsmen, property owners, small businesses, and other concerned citizens in Minnesota Indian treaty lawsuits.

As the Mille Lacs and Fond du Lac Indian treaty lawsuits have made their way through the courts, the volunteers for PERM have continued the effort to insure the strongest possible defense is put forth.

Over 100 organizations representing thousands of citizens have donated to "Save Minnesota."

If you care about your freedom, property rights, voice in government, quality of life, and pursuit of fish and game, you had better join PERM today!
