Gifts to the Museum of Science are essential to maintaining our interactive exhibits, dynamic programs, and innovative curricula. Your support allows the Museum to engage nearly five million people a year with high-quality STEM learning in person at Science Park and in museums around the world, in classrooms, and online.
A gift plan can provide you substantial tax benefits, especially when you give stock or real estate. Depending on your situation, you may save income taxes, capital gains taxes, probate expenses, and estate taxes.
Created in 2006 and named in honor of Brad and Barbara Washburn, the distinguished Washburn Legacy Society recognizes a special community of the Museum of Science supporters: the visionary, generous individuals who support the Museum through a charitable bequest, trust, life income gift, beneficiary designation or other legacy gift.
Help the Museum inspire a lifelong love of science in everyone.
The Museum of Science is grateful for the support provided by donors who have made planned gifts to our Institution.
