• Ways to Give


Annual Giving

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. By joining one of our societies, you stand alongside an invaluable group of loyal philanthropists who help the Museum deliver an amazing educational experience, and in return, you receive a wide range of benefits such as special access, exclusive events, and more.
