Benefit Events

Benefit Events

Benefit events at Museum of the Rockies generate vital support for Museum of the Rockies, Inc., a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. By holding a full slate of benefit events throughout the year, we have the chance to gather with our members and friends to celebrate the museum while also raising much-needed funds. Volunteers from the Board of Trustees and host committees are involved in planning and designing the events and seeking sponsors, guests, and business partners. 

Without revenue from our events, we could not offer a dynamic array of internationally acclaimed exhibitions and planetarium shows, offer a comprehensive range of educational programs, and maintain the unparalleled collections of paleontology, geology, history, art, and photography. Thank you for your continued support.

For more information and if you are interested in serving on a host committee, please contact Kathryn Hohmann at kathryn.hohmann@montana.edu or 406.994.4973.
