A donation to Elk River Arts & Lectures goes a long way. For a relatively small amount of money, we bring world-renowned writers to town to give free public lectures. In addition, each writer spends time working with teachers and students from the local public schools, introducing Park County kids to new ideas and art forms, to worlds far beyond Montana’s borders.

We know there are a lot of great non-profit projects in Park County that deserve your support, so we appreciate your contribution as an investment in the intellectual and artistic life of our community.
* We have partnered with Dan and Kathleen Kaul to provide lodging for visiting writers at the Murray Hotel. On the rare occasions the Murray is not available, this amount covers one night’s lodging at a quiet cabin in Paradise Valley.
