Make a Donation — Invest in Community by Investing in Philosophy

A Special Donor Campaign

for an Innovate Project


Our programs are free to the public and support critical, creative thinking, the exchange of ideas, and the application of philosophy to everyday life.

More broadly, they are opportunities for people of all backgrounds and ages (from children to elders) to gather, to learn from and with one another, and to uniquely cultivate their personal and civic selves.

Donations are tax-deductible and help to support critical, creative thinking in the Helena and surrounding communities.  

By investing in philosophy, you are investing in community. Please “don your toga” by making a making one-time donation, becoming a sustaining donor and/or contributing to the LBW Memorial Fund today!
