Make a Donation

The Boonshoft Museum of Discovery serves more than 200,000 guests, students, and teachers each year – but we could not fulfill our mission without the generous support from the community and individual donors, just like you.

Every dollar we receive helps to engage and inspire families in our community by providing high-quality, interactive, science-based educational opportunities that enrich the lives of children and adults.

Limited Time: 2017 Holiday Giving

Once again, the Boonshoft Museum is ending the year with plans to spark the imagination of children in need and their families by providing a full year of Museum fun, but we need your help! To accomplish this lofty goal, the Dayton Society of Natural History will provide complimentary Memberships to families in our community. This means, for every $115 donated from November 28 through December 31, the Dayton Society of Natural History will double the impact of your gift by providing a Society Membership to a local family without the financial resources to purchase one. And the best part? Every dollar counts, as all donations will be combined to create the biggest impact possible!

Did you know that the DSNH is also eligible for Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) donations? Our CFC number is 36476.
