Giving to the Museum

Everyone’s Favorite Place for STEM

The Museum of Science is a special place that means so much to so many people. Our educators and amazing volunteers make it fun — no matter your age — to learn about science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). When you make a gift to the Museum of Science, you help us serve a diverse community of learners, from elementary schoolchildren experiencing our institution for the first time to lifelong learners who have been visiting (and supporting!) the Museum for decades.

My job here is to rally support for exhibit development, facilities enhancements, educational programs, and our award-winning K – 12 engineering curricula. Since my arrival at the Museum last summer, I have been focused on new ways to engage our philanthropic community in ways big and small. We have made progress growing our base of supporters, and, as our iconic lobby undergoes a transformation, I am excited by the level of engagement of our members and friends in the community.

This spring, we have two special events that you can take part in to help support the Museum of Science:

  • On April 14 — at the Museum’s Annual Signature Celebration — we will be honoring two amazing Stars of STEM: The Deshpande Foundation and Google. I hope you will join us for a fun evening as we celebrate their support of STEM education at the Museum, in the Commonwealth, and around the world. This year’s celebration includes our first-ever after party — Sparks After Dark — in the Theater of Electricity. Believe me, you won’t want to miss it! For information on tickets and sponsorships, please click here.
  • And on April 18 — at the 120th Boston Marathon® — the Museum’s team of 19 runners will go the distance in support of our Traveling Programs, which brings the Museum of Science experience to more than 100,000 students annually in schools, community centers, and libraries throughout New England. You can pledge to support our runners here.

I would like to thank everyone who supports our mission to transform the nation’s relationship with science and technology. I hope we see you soon at the Museum of Science.

With gratitude,

Ellie Starr

Senior Vice President, Advancement
