Individual giving


Your support is instrumental in helping the Museum of Discovery and Science make an impact in our community.  Each year, over 400,000 visitors come through our doors and have the chance to discover many interesting and fun ways to learn about science.  Your donation to the Museum, no matter what the size, can help keep us a leading institution in our community and spark the imagination of all our visitors, both the young and young at heart.  You can help us make a difference today and for generations to come through your support.

If you have any questions about individual giving opportunities,
please e-mail the Development Office.
