How You Can Help

Ways to Contribute Memberships & Legacy Campaign Enrollment Brochure 


If you have an artifact or collection, please contact the MCHF at Contact@montanacowboyfame.com or 406-653-3800

Financial Contributions

We encourage those who desire to offer a donation to the Museum to designate a family member or trusted friend to carry out your wishes or perhaps include your intent in a will.

Support may be made through a tax deductible donation, a donors will, designation of a memorial or other gifts of property*.

* Please refer to our Gifting section         

Growing Our Homestead: Donations of Livestock and Grain

Producers may take advantage of the opportunity to donate a commodity of their choice to the MCHF & WHC – before it is sold at market.  Therefore, the producer will not have taxable income from the sale. By arranging to donate livestock or grain, the producer can reduce their tax liability, while also being able to deduct related production costs on their income taxes. 

Tax savings may be realized on federal income tax, state income tax and self‐employment tax, depending on your specific circumstances. It is possible that by donating these commodities to a charity prior to sale, the producer may realize a tax advantage greater than if you simply made a cash donation to the charity after the sale of your commodity. 

As always, you should seek advisement from your accounting/tax professional when making charitable gifts.

Please download the HOMESTEADERS CAMPAIGN - Guide To Making Gifts Of Livestock & Grain pdf document for further information and steps to proceed.
