Give to the Museum!

Gifts from you make an enormous difference in carrying out the mission of the Museum.

We value the generosity of private individuals as well as the support of foundations, corporations and government grants. Gifts to the Western Center make it possible to create innovative, exciting programs for kids and adults that otherwise would not be realized.

Your support allows us to showcase visiting exhibitions throughout each year. Our affiliation with the Smithsonian Institution opens the door for many exciting exhibits and speakers to come to the Western Center.

You can be a critical partner in the Western Center’s mission to share the archeological and paleontological history as well as the cultural heritage of our region through education, research, and exhibits.


How YOU can support the Western Center:

Individual Gifts
Memorial Gifts
Corporate Partnerships
Banner Sponsorships


Gifts can take many forms:

• Cash
• Stocks, Bonds, and other Securities
• Income Interest
• Real Estate
• Gifts of Life Insurance
• Planned Giving
• Pledges



Your gift may be structured in one of several ways to
provide you with tax benefits and income for life.

Endowed gifts support the Western Center in perpetuity and ensure the Western Center’s future, and provide you, the donor, with long term recognition. 

Please consult your tax accountant to make a gift that benefits you and the Western Center!
