Welcome to our Matching Gift and Volunteer Grant Resource Page

Every gift, large or small, provides direct support to the Museum’s programs and events. Help us provide Virginia’s youth with hands-on, fun and innovative learning experiences that will lead them to successful lives and careers. With your financial support, we can create a better world by igniting the wonder that inspires learning.

Did you know that many corporations offer employee giving programs where they match donations? The tax-deductible portion of your membership contribution is usually eligible to be matched as well.

If you volunteer with us, your company may also offer a volunteer grant program.

Thanks for checking to see if your company offers these programs!
