Your gift to the museum provides vital support for your community hub for lifelong learning. Your generosity makes possible rich educational programs for our youngest scientists and artists, changing exhibits that bring the world to Montana, and ongoing original research happening right here at MOR.
The temporary closure of Museum of the Rockies during the COVID-19 crisis has had a profound impact on your museum. Most of our supporters don't realize how much we rely on visitors and our museum store to pay our bills. In fact, those funds make up forty-four percent of our operating budget. That's why we have established the MOR Response Drive, and why we need your help today more than ever. The MOR Response Drive will underwrite our critical programs and deliver new offerings.
To make a gift to any of these funds, please contact Callie Hamilton, Membership & Annual Giving Manager, by email or (406) 994-7460.
