Your Impact


Western Spirit exists in thanks primarily to donors and generous gifts from our community. Every contribution has a significant impact on all of the museum’s staff and attendees, not to mention the museum itself.

As you can see to the right, the vast majority of the museum’s funding is all thanks to contributions from our donors, members, and supporters.







Your support means the world to us and especially to the students who visit us to learn more about the history and beauty of the land all around them. Funding Education is a vital need in our communities, and Education is a priority at Western Spirit. Your gift will have a lasting impact on curious young minds!









Western Spirit’s facilities are Gold LEED Certified, an important achievement in green building. Not only does the museum building use reclaimed material and recycle its water to nourish local flora, but our dedicated facilities team works diligently to maintain it as well as safeguard the precious works of art, objects, and artifacts under our care. Your support helps us continue to keep our facilities at the high standard of quality we set for ourselves.







Your gift allows the museum to fulfill its core mission: offering visitors the unique experience of “seeing the West from a whole new perspective.” Join our loyal donors whose support makes this possible as we present new and exciting exhibitions and programming that celebrate the heritage, history, art and culture of the American West for our diverse and growing audience. Help Western Spirit soar.
