Sponsor a world-class exhibit, special event, or our youth or adult education programs.
Did you know that there are lots of ways to support the National Museum of Wildlife Art? One way is by sponsoring a world-class exhibit, special event, or our youth or adult education programs. Each year, thanks to our generous partners, we attract more than 65,000 visitors to these gatherings, including scores of art and wildlife enthusiasts from our own community and around the globe. Please let us tell you how these philanthropic opportunities can benefit the Museum, our visitors, and you!
For more information on sponsoring Museum exhibitions, programs and events please contact email@example.com or submit an inquiry via our contact page.
In honor of Earth Day, we are pleased to announce a new fundraising initiative at the Museum—the Donor Aspen Grove. This year we will be planting 75 aspen trees along the north parking lot at the Museum. These trees, native to the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, will augment the Greater Yellowstone Botanical Tour plantings along the Sculpture Trail. Aspens are beautiful deciduous trees with leaves that turn a striking golden color in the fall. In addition to wildlife habitat, the Donor Aspen Grove will contribute to visitors’ summer experience at the Museum by adding much-needed shade near our guest parking.
Individual trees are available for $2,000. Trees may be purchased in honor of an individual, family, or business. This is a beautiful opportunity to celebrate important milestones like a birth, wedding, or graduation—or to honor the passing of a loved one.
Your chosen commemorative name will be placed on a metal plaque adjacent to the grove. If you are interested in purchasing a tree, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 307-732-5415.
Support the Museum through Wills, Bequests & Estate Plans
Planning your estate and legacy for future generations, including your charitable interests, takes careful evaluation. Consulting with the appropriate professionals can assist you. Discussing your charitable intentions with us can lead to a much better result than going it alone — and will ensure that your gift is used just as you wish. We can provide valuable information about any of the creative giving techniques mentioned in these planned giving pages.
Make a Difference with your Time
A museum volunteer plays a vital role in many aspects of the Museum, assisting with guided gallery tours, information desk, staffing special events, and other “behind the scenes” projects in numerous Museum departments. Whether you live in the valley part time, or are here with us all year long, we can work with you to customize a volunteer experience that will combine your interests and abilities with the Museum’s commitment to inspiring appreciation and knowledge of fine art and humanity’s relationship with nature.
The only requirements for volunteering at the National Museum of Wildlife Art are a passion for wildlife and a love of fine art.
The mission of the volunteer community is to enhance and reinforce the mission and vision of the National Museum of Wildlife Art by:
- Sharing our unique skills, passion and enthusiasm
- Being ambassadors for the organization
- Engaging visitors and forging connections
- Continuing to learn and have fun!
Volunteer Opportunities Include:
Community Events: First Sundays, Plein Air Fest (June), Western Visions (September)
Docent Tours: Docents are volunteers who have been trained in interpretation of the Museum’s collection and lead public tours.
Gallery Guide: Help visitors feel welcome in the galleries.
Fables, Feathers & Fur: Engage kids with the art of storytelling and masterworks from the collection.
