Annual Campaign

Inspire Genius Help inspire the next generation of curious minds and “green” problem-solvers!

Make a tax-deductible donation to the Connecticut Science Center and support the operations, exhibits and programs that make this one of the state’s leading family learning destinations. From creating new interactive experiences to upgrading technology, from training Youth Ambassadors to purchasing lab supplies, your gifts help offset daily essential expenses. Gifts of any size make a big difference. Give $25, $50, $100…. it all adds up!

There are many ways to give to the Connecticut Science Center. Make an unrestricted gift to support programs and exhibits; join as a member to take advantage of free general admission; or become a corporate member or sponsor for great employee benefits and recognition.

Give inspiration, get inspired

All donors enjoy an insider’s look into the issues at the core of the Connecticut Science Center through Science Forward, an e-publication that explores our role and our partners in science education, tourism and the innovation economy. Donors also receive invitations to exclusive special events and other benefits, depending on the level of your gift.

One Parent’s Perspective

“As parents, my husband and I have now become devoted supporters both of Annie Fisher STEM Magnet School in Hartford and the Connecticut Science Center. This is an example of a truly exciting partnership among a school and nonschool educational organization that really makes a difference.”

–Beverly Zell, Simsbury parent of a student participating in Science Center school programming.
