You Can Help!
There are many ways you can help meet Tellus Science Museum’s most crucial needs by making your fully tax-deductible donation today.
General donations are especially important because they provide direct support to the museum’s operations including permanent exhibits, educational programming, and collections. Your gift can make a difference at Tellus. Now, more than ever, we are counting on you to help us maintain these high quality experiences. Your gift, big or small, will allow the museum to:
- Encourage over 200,000 minds a year to become lifelong learners.
- Inspire young minds to become excited about science, to provide science teachers with an extended classroom and to offer the public a world-class science museum filled with engaging exhibits.
- Care for our extensive collections of over 12,000 artifacts and are illustrated through exhibitions focused on paleontology, geology, earth sciences, and biodiversity.
General donations are tax-deductible and separate from Museum membership.
Give a gift of stock
A gift of long-term, appreciated securities (stock, bonds, or mutual fund shares) allows you to claim the full fair market value of the stock as a tax deduction. Often, you can also avoid paying capital gains tax. You may also choose to sell stock that has lost value and donate the proceeds from the sale. You can then deduct the capital loss, as well as the amount of the sale of the stock.
Leave a legacy
Since opening in 2009, Tellus Science Museum has brought world-class science education to families throughout the Southeast. Without any state or local funding, the museum relies solely on our membership and the generosity of individuals, foundations, and corporations for support. By remembering Tellus in your estate or financial plans, you will make a lasting difference on the museum. It also helps further your financial goals and helps future generations better understand the role of science in our world.
Thank you for your interest in supporting Tellus Science Museum and making an impact on future generations!
