Your Support

Invest in Curiosity

Access to hands-on science education through the Access to Science Pipeline is only possible because of generous donations from people like you. Gifts to Pacific Science Center fuel a passion for discovery, experimentation and critical thinking this holiday season.

We need your help: be one of the 400 donors to donate before 12/31, and an anonymous donor will give $40,000 to support science education at PacSci! Your participation with a gift today will help us reach our goal and unlock even more access to science.

Contact the Development Office: (206) 443-2878,

Think outside the box when gift-giving this year. Adopt a butterfly for your loved one to commemorate the 20th year of the Tropical Butterfly House.
