Why Make a Gift?
The Annual Fund covers expenses for our everyday activities. It keeps the whistle blowing in the Coal Mine, the tornado turning in Science Storms and the wheels spinning in the minds of the million-plus guests who visit us each year. It's the engine that enables us to annually:
- Host nearly 340,000 students on field trips.
- Conduct nationally recognized science education programs for thousands of students, teachers and their families through MSI's Welcome to Science Initiative.
- Train 1,000 teachers to improve the way they teach science.
- Fund 100 after-school Science Minors Clubs in neighborhoods across Chicago and northwest Indiana.
You can help keep sparks flying at MSI. Support our vision to inspire and motivate children to achieve their full potential in science, technology, medicine and engineering by making a gift to the Museum Annual Fund today.
All Annual Fund gifts are tax deductible.
