Directing Your Gift

Sciencenter Annual Fund

Unrestricted gifts to the Annual Fund give the Sciencenter the flexibility to direct support where it is needed most - from developing new hands-on science exhibits and growing our educational programs to supporting the daily operations of the museum and maintenance of facilities.

Sciencenter Endowment

The Sciencenter of tomorrow is being created by the endowment gifts of today.

The Sciencenter's endowment consists of funds that were donated to support the museum in perpetuity. The income from the Sciencenter's endowment supports museum operations, new exhibits, programs, and events.

Unrestricted Giving to Endowment
Unrestricted gifts to endowment are the most versatile of all. The income supports the general operating budget and enables the Sciencenter to respond quickly to emerging opportunities.

Special Endowment Funds
Sustainability and growth of the Sciencenter's signature educational programs and museum spaces will depend on the establishment of special endowment funds. Special funds can be set up to support programs of particular interest to individual donors. A named fund in support of a specific Sciencenter program can be established for gifts of $10,000 and above.
