Way Out West:

Let’s tell East Idaho’s story right … and right now

Too often, we Idahoans have allowed others to write our story. Your donation to our new flagship exhibit, Way Out West, helps us tell the world’s biggest and most balanced story about our region, convey a diversity of voices, and offer a range of exciting and enlightening experiences for learners of all ages and types.

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.
