About the Legacy Challenge: Support the Center Forever

The Grainger Family Charitable Fund will match every dollar raised for our unrestricted endowment by June 12, 2024, up to $14.5 million! That means $29 million invested in our future – a huge impact!

Deadline: June 12, 2024

Why $29 million for the endowment? An influx of $29 million means the annual endowment payout will go from funding twenty percent of our operating budget to funding one-third of our budget.

What’s the hurry? Endowments are meant to last forever. The Legacy Challenge contributions need time to grow in our investment portfolio before they can contribute to the annual payout.

But I like to fund special projects! We get it—we like special projects, too! But we can’t realize great ideas without first taking care of the basics: Collections, infrastructure, staff, and the thousands of other things needed to run a world-class museum. Remember, your gift to the Legacy Challenge will support these necessities forever. By meeting the Legacy Challenge goals, we will be able to focus on creating new and exciting ways to Connect People to the American West!

Questions? Please call Piper Fennimore at 307-578-4025, or e-mail [email protected].
