Idaho Gives:

Let’s make your history accessible

This year for Idaho Gives, we're working to raise $12,600 to purchase a state-of-the-art scanner so we can digitize our archives and make your region's history more accessible to you and to future generations. Thanks to a generous donor, each gift up to $4,000 will be matched 1:1.

Idaho Gives 2021 runs April 29 - May 6.

Every gift makes a difference

Admissions, grants, and other earned revenue cover only a fraction of what we do as a 501(c)3 nonprofit. Your donations and sponsorships make up the balance. Here’s what to know right away:

  • You have options: help fund Way Out West, contribute to the MOI Sustainability Fund, or pick another cause.
  • It might be cheaper than you think, thanks to generous Idaho Education Tax Credits.
  • Major gifts and sponsorships can come with naming opportunities and leverage community support through matching.
  • Planned giving options are available, such as bequests, charitable trusts, gifts of other assets, tax-saving deductions from your IRA, and more.

You may give right now using the form below, or discuss options with Director of Development Kim Lee (208-522-1400 ext. 3013 or e-mail).

Note: If you are interested in donating an item or artifact, please see the policies and procedures on our research & collections page.
