Front-line Workers

Your Membership can be a gift of thanks to front-line workers

In support of front-line workers throughout the community, the High Desert Museum is offering ways to gift museum memberships and passes to those who are putting themselves at risk to serve the public during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The new Front-Line Worker Appreciation Program provides three different ways to offer support.

  1. Your membership supports a free membership for a front-line worker. The renewal or purchase of a new membership at the family-level or above will provide a free annual family Museum membership to a front-line worker. The Museum is currently coordinating with Home Instead Senior Care to distribute the memberships.
  2. Businesses giving back to businesses. Businesses that renew or become a corporate Museum member will be able to choose a front-line business or organization to gift a free annual corporate Museum membership. Corporate memberships include an admission pass that businesses can make available to their employees.
  3. Be a sponsor and share the membership. Front-line Appreciation Sponsors are individuals or businesses who can share one-day passes to the Museum with the front-line business or organization of their choice to distribute among staff. The passes will be valid for one year from the date that the Museum reopens.

If you have questions about the program, please call Corporate Engagement Manager Gail Hodge at 541-382-4754 ext. 284 or email her at
