POCATELLO – The Idaho Museum of Natural History on the Idaho State University Pocatello campus is participating in Giving Tuesday on Nov. 27 and invites the public to support its endeavors.
#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.
The public can support the Idaho Museum of Natural History on Nov. 27 by visiting the museum and donating directly or visiting its website IMNH.isu.edu and donating to #GivingTuesday. The direct link to the museum’s #GivingTuesday page is www.isu.edu/imnh/join-and-support/giving-tuesday/. The first $1,000 donated will be matched dollar for dollar by patron Rick Carron.
For #GivingTuesday the museum is offering several different easy options for giving including:
• Pay It Forward, $15 gift, that provides someone who would be unable to visit the museum with two admission passes.
• Fossil Sorting, $45 gift, that supports the museum’s paleontology team efforts to find fossils and other projects.
• Herbarium Plant Mounting, $100 gift, that supports the museum’s life science team’s efforts to mount newly collected plant specimens.
• Admission Ticket, $250 gift, that allows for a memorable experience for youths in third through fifth grade to participate in Science Trek 2019 camp for youths, or for adults to enjoy the museum’s 85th-anniversary gala that will be in spring 2019.
• Or patrons can choose their own giving level and donate to the Idaho Museum of Natural History Director’s Excellence Fund, the museum’s endowment funds or other programs.
