The Museum of Discovery is a non-profit organization which is certified tax-exempt under section 501 (c)(3) of the United States Internal Revenue Service code. One of the ways we support the cultural and economic vitality of our community is by supporting other non-profit organizations in their fundraising activities. Because of the number of request for donations, we are not able to honor every request. We give priority to organizations directly benefiting children (i.e., libraries; youth centers; public and private schools; etc.), and donations that promote the Museum of Discovery through advertising or other means.
