Ways to Give

Make a difference — Philanthropy Advancing Science Education

Supporting Science Education

As an independent non-profit organization that does not receive public funding, OMSI depends on the generosity of community members like you to create awe-inspiring, inquiry-based science learning experiences for our children and families.

Our donors give for reasons that are close to their hearts, but their impact reaches far and wide.

Become a Sustaining Donor

Give to OMSI on a monthly basis. Beyond the impacts your support creates, your contribution also entitles you to special benefits, including invitations to OMSI events and receptions, personal tours, and exclusive information updates.

Become a Member

By becoming an OMSI member, you help spark an interest in science for over one million children and families per year.

Planned Giving

Light a path for the future by leaving a legacy with a lasting impact through your estate planning. By making a planned gift, you will provide long-lasting support and ensure science learning opportunities are available for generations to come. By planning for a gift in your will, you become a member of the J. C. Stevens Society and will receive invitations to exclusive annual events.


The OMSI Gala

Our annual gala is our signature fundraising event of the year. Hundreds of community leaders join us for a night to remember in service to growing the impact of OMSI’s unique brand of hands-on science learning.


The 2024 Gala will be on Saturday, May 4th
