Shape the future of our region

The Museum of Idaho exists and thrives because of visionary donors committed to bringing the world to Idaho, and Idaho to the world. Together, we can expand our current capabilities and add new ones, the likes of which our region has never seen.

Interested in donating an item instead?


We are humbled to receive donations to MOI in many ways, including through third parties such as GreatNonprofits. However, in addition to fees that may reduce the impact of your giving, such third-party donations may not be eligible for the Idaho Education Tax Credit. Rather, donations made directly to MOI through the form above, or through cash, check, credit card, appreciated stock, or other assets, can maximize benefits for both you and MOI.
