Annual Fund

Science lovers go above and beyond to ensure that HMNS can open its doors and inspire the next generation of scientists every day. Join the community of donors who make tax-deductible gifts to our Annual Fund and help us raise $25,000 before August 31. The Annual Fund is the heart of the Museum’s fundraising efforts and provides for the basic needs of the institution.

Annual Fund gifts support:

  • Programs for youth that are rich in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) content
  • Free and low-cost field trips for school groups
  • Free admission to the Museum’s extensive permanent collection of 2 million rare and beautiful objects on Thursdays from 2 to 5 p.m.
  • Unique special exhibits that feature major works of scientific and cultural interests which complement the Museum’s permanent exhibition
  • State-of-the-art Giant Screen 3D films that allow the audience to experience new environments from outer space to the deep sea
