Leadership and Goals

Vision Aligned with Values

We are proud to lead this distinguished committee and honorary cabinet and to serve as chairs of the $250 million Campaign for the Museum of Science, the institution's first comprehensive capital campaign. The $150 million in new gifts and commitments realized during the quiet phase of the Campaign is a testament to the power of our mission and vision of our master plan. Achieving the remaining goal of $100 million to support imaginative exhibits, innovative educational programs, and inspired improvements of our facilities will help to secure a bright future for the Museum of Science.
