Donor Circles

There are many ways you can become more involved in helping the Yellowstone Art Museum present great exhibitions and programs. We welcome your participation and encourage you to consider these options:

Remembering Someone Special

You can help a loved one celebrate a special milestone in his or her life through a “Gift in Honor” of that occasion. Remember friends’ and family members’ birthdays, anniversaries, or personal successes by making a gift in their names to Museum programs they enjoy (such as art conservation support, education, or new art for the permanent collection). The Museum will notify the celebrant of your kindness.

Gifts can also be made in memory one who has passed on. The Museum will notify family members that this thoughtful and enduring gesture has been made.

Give the Gift of Membership

A membership to the Yellowstone Art Museum makes the perfect gift for children who are learning to explore their world, for a newlywed couple just beginning to discover their common interests, for that person on your list who already has everything, or simply for someone with whom you want to share your joy in art.

Program Support

You can make a gift to a specific Museum program. Choose to support:

  • Education Programs – to ensure our ongoing ability to bring creativity and inspiration to children and adults
  • Collection Conservation and Care – to help us take the best possible care of the priceless objects in our collection
  • The Museum’s Art Purchase Fund – to help expand our permanent collection of outstanding regional art
  • The Capital Fund – to maintain and improve our facility to make it a safe place for our collections and a wonderful place for you and others to visit
  • The Will James Annual Fund – to help preserve the Museum’s collection of art and personal possessions of this great cowboy author and illustrator.

Exhibition Sponsorship

The Museum presents many temporary exhibitions each year, and we rely on the generosity of the community to help us make these exhibitions possible. Gifts of any amount toward a temporary exhibition will be credited in the Museum’s annual report. Gifts of $500 or more toward most exhibitions are recognized in materials associated with that exhibition and celebrated with a number of other great benefits including public recognition for you and/or your company, participation in special activities associated with the exhibition, and more. See our Upcoming Exhibitions to determine which exhibition you would like to be part of during the coming year.


To ensure that the Museum will be able to continue its exciting programming in perpetuity, consider a gift to our Endowment. Invested to provide income through interest earned, your gift will keep on giving each year. Learn more.
