Program Guidelines

So that we can provide this program to the greatest number of community organizations possible, please take note of the following limitations: 

  • Organizations must be based in Utah and provide proof of valid 501c(3) status.
  • Only one package will be awarded to each organization per calendar year. 
  • Only requests made through this website will be honored. No written, phone or fax solicitations will be accepted.
  • Organizations are responsible for ensuring that packages are displayed and awarded properly.
  • The successful bidder will need to bring package elements to the Museum prior to the expiration date on the passes they receive.
  • Duplicate or replacement packages will not be provided. 
  • Please allow a minimum of four weeks prior to your event.


Displaying the Day at the Museum Package

The Day at the Museum package comes in a "tube" that contains a 8 1/2" x 14" mini poster, a 8 1/2" x 11" flyer with the package info, a few Museum brochures, and a water bottle.  These can be displayed on your auction table to promote the value of the item.

  • The actual passes and coupons are contained in a sealed envelope.  Please keep these safe until a winner is determined.
  • After the auction, all components can be reassembled back into the "tube" container and the entire package along with the passes can be given to the winner.
  • The winner is responsible for bringing the passes to the Museum before the expiration date.
  • NHMU is not responsible for the passes or contents once they are picked up at the Museum by your organization.

We hope this program will serve as an enticing, profitable, and easy-to-manage addition to your fundraising event!
