Support Us


We know there are a lot of great nonprofit 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

Donating to Elk River Arts & Lectures makes it possible for us to offer an array of free and low-cost programs that broaden the landscape of ideas in our rural community. We are a small nonprofit organization and every donation helps support programs that provide youth and adults opportunities to express themselves creatively and engage with new ideas.

Donate online by clicking the button below, or you may send a check to Elk River Arts & Lectures, PO Box 2212, Livingston, Montana 59047.
