Granite County Museum & Cultural Center is a non-profit 501 (c)(3) charitable organization. We rely on contributions from the community at large for operating funds. However, those funds are always limited and we cannot continue to bring you new exhibits and programs without public support.
Museum donations can be made in many ways:

Wills and Estates
Many of our Museum members tell us how much they enjoy our facility and they wish they could do more to support the Museum.
