Did You Know?

In 2018 The Discovery Center Foundation awarded over $10,000 to The Discovery Center. We funded two $1,500 scholarships to deserving families for the Preschool program and also helped fund various projects in the museum including the brand new Pet Vet exhibit!

We are proud to serve The Discovery Center and to help provide critical funds to ensure that the museum remains a staple for children in the Southern Tier for another 35 years.

February is the month of LOVE! We hope that you’ll share your LOVE with us by making a meaningful contribution to The Discovery Center Foundation! With your donation, we’ll continue to share our LOVE with The Discovery Center so they can refresh the museum, reach more children in the community, and continue to provide unique programs to the children in the Southern Tier!

Thank You for your support!
