Other Ways to Give

Your generous contribution empowers us to provide hands-on education to students, deliver interpretive talks to visitors, inspire stewardship among outdoor enthusiasts, and cultivate a strong sense of community. Together, we can move mountains. In addition to making a one-time general donation, there are many ways to support the Mount St. Helens Institute. 

Monthly Giving

When you give monthly to the Mount St. Helens Institute, you’re making your valuable support go even further. Your monthly gift makes an immediate impact on the work we do and provides important financial resources we can count on. Start your monthly giving by donating online, then select the “make this a recurring donation” box and complete the rest of the form.

Donate a Gift of Stock

If you are like most individuals, the value of your stock and other investments has grown over the years. Perhaps you are entering your retirement years and wondering how you can turn your highly appreciated asset into extra income. Put your stock to work and donate to the Mount St. Helens Institute. Donating appreciated stocks, bonds or mutual funds is quick, simple and may provide you with significant tax benefits. To give a gift of stock and receive transfer instructions, please contact Alyssa Hoyt, Strategic Projects Director, at 360-207-4674 or email Alyssa@mshinstitute.org.
