Help light the Carousel and win a party!

A Carousel for Missoula is two-thirds of the way to lighting up the Carousel with longer-lasting, more energy-efficient light bulbs. The Carousel’s volunteer mechanics have searched for an LED bulb that will maintain the old-fashioned look of the Carousel and the color of the animals, be more energy-efficient, and save money for the Carousel. The new bulbs will last longer and use approximately 1/10 of the energy needed to operate the current bulbs.

Thanks to a grant from Northwestern Energy and donations from the community, the Carousel has raised $4,174 of the $6,118 needed to replace the 966 light bulbs on the Carousel, but still need your help!

Participate in our ‘Buy a Bulb’ fundraiser by donating $5 for each bulb you'd like to sponsor and be automatically entered to win a FREE private rental or Double-Deluxe Birthday Party at the Carousel*!

To 'buy a bulb', simply click on the PayPal donation button at the bottom of this page or download this form to mail in your donation."Buy a Bulb' donations can also be made in person at the Carousel's Gift Shop.  If you are buying a bulb through PayPal, please put 'Buy a Bulb' in the notes area.  

Help build a legacy with A Carousel for Missoula! With your generous donations, A Carousel for Missoula will keep galloping for years to come!

There are many ways you can lend your support! For just $1,500, you can adopt a hand-carved, wooden horse or dragon corbel that will stand watch over the carousel and its riders.

You can also adopt a limestone panel carved by local artisan John Thompson! Choose between a 4.5 square foot panel for $5,000, or a 9 square foot panel for $10,000. To recognize your generous donations, adopters of corbels and panels will be recognized on a plaque.

Furthermore, you can also adopt a room at A Carousel for Missoula, starting at $25,000.
If you are interested in any of these opportunities, please complete this form, or call Theresa at 549-8382.
