Support Lifelong Learning
Inspiring Others to Experience Hands-On Science
The Leonardo da Vinci Society is an individual giving society that was established by the Museum of Discovery and Science in 1993. It is the Museum’s most prestigious group of individual donors whose involvement reflects a shared belief in the importance of science education.
Learning is the only thing the mind never exhausts, never fears, and never regrets.– Leonardo Da Vinci
It is significant that the name “Leonardo da Vinci” was chosen for this society. The scope and depth of his work – as a scientist, inventor, painter, and architect – produced extraordinary achievements which have spurred the minds of generations which followed. As a member of the Leonardo da Vinci Society, you will help the Museum do the same – ignite the imaginations of all who experience hands-on science.
As a member of the Leonardo da Vinci Society, your support ensures that the Museum of Discovery and Science continues to grow and fulfill its mission to provide experiential pathways to lifelong learning in science for children and adults through exhibits, programs and films. One of the many benefits of being a loyal supporter of the Leonardo da Vinci Society is the pride in knowing your investment makes a true difference by supporting the fiscal health of the Museum and advancing science education in the community. Leonardo da Vinci Society members are special because they value the Museum as a community resource and choose to share that impact with others by investing generously in the Museum’s mission.
Leonardo da Vinci Society members receive exclusive benefits including members-only events throughout the year. Past events include a complimentary holiday family continental breakfast before a showing of The Polar Express IMAX film and a dinner on a luxury yacht.
By joining the Leonardo da Vinci Society with a gift of $1,000 or more, you make it possible for the Museum to provide excellent programs and exhibits, fund innovative educational programming and make the Museum of Discovery and Science accessible to all members of our community. The different giving levels are shown below.
