Give to Discovery Park
Gifts to Discovery Park go to support and strengthen every area of the museum and park. From regular maintenance and day-to-day operations to allowing the Discovery Park educators to create new life-changing exhibits, programs and classes. Gifts go to work immediately inspiring children and adults to see beyond. Gifts may also be made in honor or memory of a loved one.
Give the Gift of Discovery
Thanks to continued support from generous donors like you, Discovery Park of America will continue to grow and thrive. There are several ways you can join us in supporting our mission of inspiring children and adults to see beyond.
Here are some examples of how your money can be used:
- Educational Greenhouse and Pavilion – Your support of $100 or more for this project will assure your name is on the wall of “Green Thumb” supporters when the exhibit opens in 2023.
- “Duck, Duck, Goose: Waterfowl of the Mississippi Flyway” – Your gift of $250 or more for this project will assure your name on the donor wall.
- Kirkland Scholarship Program – Your gift to the Kirkland Scholarship Program allows for free admission for students on field trips from schools with underserved students.
Honorariums and Memorials
A tribute gift is a meaningful way to convey sympathy to the bereaved, memorialize a loved one, commemorate a special occasion or honor a person’s lie and accomplishments. Your gift to Discovery Park of America made in honor or memory of this special person ensures a legacy that extends into the far future.
Sponsor a Field Trip
A contribution of $250 to the Kirkland Scholarship Fund will pay for 100% of the cost of admission for 30 students to visit Discovery Park of America. This fund targets schools where 50% or more of the students qualify for the free or reduced lunch program. Thanks to your generous donation, more students will be exposed to the world of science, technology, engineering, art, math, space history and more.
Why Give? Just watch.
