Have you considered?

Making a gift of appreciated stocks or bonds?

By giving stocks or bonds valued above their original cost, you avoid the tax on capitals gains that would be incurred if you sold the securities. We encourage you to contact your personal tax advisor to discuss the benefits of gifting appreciated securities.

Having your employer match your gift to the Sciencenter?

Many companies match the charitable gifts made by their employees. Check with your Human Resources department for information on your company's matching gifts program.
