McWane Science Center - Celebrating 20 Years of Science

Year End Giving

Year End Giving

McWane Science Center was founded to help change lives through science and wonder, and since we opened our doors in July 1998, we have served this purpose for the Greater Birmingham area as well as the region beyond. As a nonprofit institution, it would be impossible to deliver exhibits, educational programs, scholarships, and unique opportunities without our donors. Individual contributions have helped us to become the world-class science museum we are today.

“We are exciting and inspiring inquiry and innovation in our children and our society, and with your support, we can do even more. We hope you will consider making an end-of-year donation in 2017 to help us sustain and grow our impact for the upcoming year.”
-Amy Templeton (President & CEO)

As we near the end of 2017, we are looking forward to an exciting and impactful future. We have ambitious goals and with your support, we can accomplish great things. Some great opportunities for 2018 include:

  • McWane Science Center’s 20th Anniversary:  We will celebrate with special events all year long, including a giant Birthday Bash!
  • IMAX:  McWane Science Center will renovate and digitize our IMAX Theater.
  • New Exhibit Experiences: Backyard Adventures and Dinosaurs in Motion

Please consider McWane Science Center in your 2017 end of year giving plans.  Your support at any level would be greatly appreciated and will help us continue to serve you and prepare your future scientists, engineers, and community leaders.
