Why Give to NYSCI?

NYSCI is not only a science museum, it is a laboratory for learning, a training ground for young scientists, a resource for teachers and students, and a partner to one of the most diverse and dynamic communities in the world. Your support helps us sustain and expand our work to engage the public in understanding complex scientific ideas, conduct research on the best ways to educate young people in STEM, and directly impact the numbers of diverse young people who elect to go into scientific and technological careers.

We hope you will visit the museum, become a member and also consider making a gift to support our educational programs and research — whether it be one-time or recurring, or through NYSCI’s President’s Council, Corporate Partners Program or annual gala. No matter the vehicle, you are providing critical support to the institution and sustaining our core work, enabling NYSCI to deliver transformative educational programs, develop groundbreaking exhibitions and experiences, and provide youth programming and mentoring that inspires the next generation of scientists.


Matching Gifts

Does your employer sponsor a matching gift program? Most companies do so for both current and retired employees, and it is a great way to double or triple your support! If your employer matches gifts and your donation to NYSCI qualifies with their guidelines, we hope that you will consider requesting a match.


Planned Giving

The best way to have an enduring impact on NYSCI’s core work is to include us in your estate planning. This provides an opportunity to not only make a lasting gift, but also the potential to reduce estate and inheritance taxes. As you consider your gift, your discussions with your own legal and financial counsel are a private matter. However, we hope you will consider sharing your plans with the New York Hall of Science so that your gift may be recognized.
