The Discovery Resiliency Fund

Your support is critical

Please make a tax-deductible gift today for the museum you love, and the science we need.

Right now, The Discovery is facing a truly devastating impact on our mission to inspire by being the place to experience science. Due to financial challenges related to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are predicting a revenue shortfall in 2020 of $1.5 million. To date we have raised $1.1 million in support of the museum’s Resiliency Fund (including $700,000 reallocated from restricted/capital projects). We need our community’s support to raise the remaining $400,000 needed to survive the immediate financial crisis.

As a nonprofit organization, The Discovery relies on philanthropic support from donors like you. By donating to The Discovery, a locally founded 501(c)3 nonprofit, you’re ensuring access to world-class, hands-on science experiences for our entire community. Your gift will support our most urgent needs in this time of crisis.

In this time of urgent need, we are turning to our community to support our steadfast efforts to provide enriching, hands-on science education. Please make a gift of $50, $250, $1,000, or whatever amount you can to help.

Support The Discovery Today!

We recognize that this crisis is affecting everyone differently, but please know that your gift in any amount will make a tremendous impact. Support from our community is what made The Discovery a reality back in 2011, and we remain optimistic that our community will help the museum survive this financial crisis.
