Like so many in our community, the Natural History Museum of Utah has suffered devastating financial losses as a result of COVID-19. However, we've been working hard to meet the moment by offering online science classes, virtual tours, live Q&As with scientists, and much more.
We need your support to help everything NHMU is offering online today, and build the foundation we need to reopen our doors, which is why we're launching our Fund the Future campaign. Click here to make a gift today!
To help make possible everything we're doing right now — and lay the foundation for our reopening — we're asking for your help to Fund the Future of NHMU. And when you make a gift by June 18, your gift will be doubled up to $100,000 thanks to our generous matching grant donors.
Since closing to the public in March, income from admissions, event rentals, and the Museum store and café has ceased. We've had to cancel the Gala, our biggest fundraising event of the year. And the Museum recently put 193 individuals — two-thirds of our talented staff — on furlough or short work breaks.
- Free livestream science classes for students learning from home
- Care of our invaluable collections
- Ongoing scientific research
- Summer@Home programs
- Virtual field trips
- And, so much more!
