More Ways to Give
Looking for unique ways to support MSI? We offer creative and flexible giving options designed to help your organization meet your philanthropic goals.
Where to Give
You can restrict how your gift is used by selecting specific funding opportunities.
Growing in scope, importance and impact, MSI’s Center for the Advancement of Science Education (CASE) is nationally recognized for innovative programming that empowers teachers, engages the community and excites students.
Our building is our largest artifact. Constructed for the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition, MSI is housed in the last remaining building from the fair. Keeping our historic home in tip-top shape takes a lot of work—and you can help.
The endowment is MSI's capital fund. A healthy endowment decreases our dependence on annual fundraising, increases available funds, supports capital improvement and provides greater financial stability and growth.
Ways to Give
Money isn’t everything. Your company and employees can lend support and demonstrate your commitment to science education in a number of non-traditional ways.
You can help MSI reduce its expenses and be a better steward of gifts by donating goods or services. Examples include consulting support, mailing services, food and beverages for events, supplies for educational programming—the list goes on and on.
Corporate Volunteer Program
MSI offers many opportunities for corporate partners to support the Museum by engaging with visitors and inspiring children to view their potential for a future in science, technology, engineering and medicine. From participation at career fairs to informal conversations during Junior Science Cafes, volunteers have the power to inspire the inventive genius in everyone!
