Do you have a deep, defining memory? A moment in time that sparked an interest, illuminated an idea, or when you truly felt inspired? At OMSI, we’ve helped create those moments for more than 65 years by connecting people of all ages with rich, in-depth science learning. As an independent nonprofit, we rely on corporations, foundations, government grants, and the generosity of individuals like you.
Communities have an ever-growing need for vibrant and trusted sources of informal science education. We know that out-of-school learning opportunities supplement school curricula, prepare students for jobs in the new economy, and ensure the success of future generations. Across Oregon, OMSI helps create informed, engaged citizens prepared to confront the challenges of our day and our future.
“OMSI gives opportunities to children who might not otherwise have access to science education. I love making a real difference in my community through OMSI.”
Align your contributions with benefits tailored to specific areas such as the planetarium, submarine, or camps and classes. We can also help you identify projects, exhibitions, programs, and events that correspond to your personal interests.
“A source for science and technology while developing critical thinking skills; knowledge that is vital to an increasingly interconnected world. I give to OMSI to support Oregon’s future."
By supporting OMSI, you recognize that science is a catalyst for innovation, the stimulus for life-changing solutions, and for many, the beginning of a life-long curiosity and concern for building a better world.
