Leave a Lasting Mark

Support STEAM Learning Enrichment well into the Future.

The Discovery Science Center and Planetarium Legacy Society was established at the request of the many generous Discovery supporters who wished to remember the Science Center in their wills. The purpose of the Legacy Society is to recognize those who have remembered Discovery through planned giving, and to show the power that a lifetime of STEAM learning can have. The Board and leadership of Discovery  are committed to honoring donors and providing guidance, information, and any other support you may need.

If Discovery Science Center and Planetarium has had an impact on your life or the lives of your family, please consider ensuring ongoing support for our mission. With your financial support, we can continue to deliver dynamic, hands-on STEAM experiences to the children of today — and tomorrow.
