Make a Gift

The Annual Fund supports every aspect of the Museum — from regular maintenance and day-to-day operations to feeding our friends in the Live Animal Care Center; to allowing our educators to create new interactive exhibits and develop live presentations. Every dollar you generously give to the Annual Fund goes directly into furthering STEM education and delivering an amazing experience to visitors of all ages.

Your gift to the Annual Fund goes to work immediately and is essential to the Museum’s efforts to inspire the dreamers and thinkers of tomorrow.

Double Your Gift…Double Your Impact!

Many companies offer matching gifts for charitable donations made by their employees, which could double or triple your contribution to the Museum — some companies' matching gifts program extend to retired employees and board members.

To find out if your gift qualifies for a match from your employer, visit where you can search a database of over 20,000 companies to see if your gift is eligible and how to apply for your matching gifts benefits.

Tribute Giving

Tribute gifts celebrate milestones, honor special relationships, or memorialize the loss of a loved one. To make an honorary or memorial gift, send an email to indicating the purpose of your gift as well as the name and address of the honoree after you have completed your transaction. For memorial gifts, if a memorial fund has not already been established, you should note in your email the name of the honoree and include the name and address of his/her next of kin.
