Planned Giving

Make a legacy gift to Museum of the Rockies

As a long-term supporter of our community museum, you know that when a child stands toe-to-toe with a T. rex, something magical happens. Whether you’ve attended the openings of our changing exhibits, volunteered at our Living History Farm, or served as a docent, you know first-hand how many lives we’ve touched. Open the door to even bigger giving to support an organization that you already hold dear.

Using our new Planned Giving program, you now have a powerful tool to make a longer-term statement of support for an organization that ignites the imagination of community members, from children to grandparents. Planned gifts can help you with effective tax reduction strategies while ensuring that the Museum can generate the resources needed to carry out our programs. By combining charitable giving with your financial and estate planning, you will create a personalized, lasting legacy.

Planned giving can be as straightforward as including a bequest to MOR in your will. Other more sophisticated options, such as charitable gift annuities, offer guaranteed income and substantial tax savings. You can also take advantage of a special program called the Montana Endowed Tax Credit, which helps you save money on taxes while helping the Museum build our endowment fund, which works like a “piggy bank” to ensure the Museum’s future.

We ask you to consider taking the next step by exploring planned giving opportunities with our Director of Philanthropy, Kathryn Hohmann. You can reach her at 406-994-2682 or by email at
