We have $200,000 more to go, and we truly need your help right now. We know that with your support, we can complete our goal by October 1st.

Your donation can come in many different ways: giving a one-time monetary donation; make a long term investment through a Pledge; become a Supporting Member of the Mammoth Site; or through our “Buy a Brick” program. Also, a select group of naming rights are still available based on your level of donation. Please contact our Director of Development, Presston Gabel at 605-745-6017, or via email at presstong@mammothsite.org should you have any questions.
