Give to the SM&NC
The Stamford Museum & Nature Center is a cultural and educational treasure for the community-whether it is the serenity of our nature trails, the dynamic programs we offer families, or the model educational benefits we provide for school children. Our growth depends on the generosity of our donors. We are so grateful for our friends' past support.
We are proud of our achievements last year, highlighted in our 2013-2014 Annual Report. Among all our programs, our highly regarded education programs continue to show strong gains. The Art, Nature & Me preschool was again fully enrolled and has a waiting list of 75 applicants for next year. The SM&NC Aligned-With-The-Schools program, an enhancement of the Connecticut school curricula, served more than 25,000 students in 132 schools, and reached 12,000 kids from underserved communities. Membership, corporate volunteer programs, exhibition attendance all saw robust growth last year, making 2013-2014 a great success overall.
Your 100% tax-deductible contribution supports everything we do here. Admission fees to festivals, events, and programs cover only a portion of operating expenses for this 118-acre treasure and safe haven for families. Your support helps us to operate as a top-flight cultural, recreational, and educational resource for the community.
Please contribute as generously as you can. If you work for a company with a Matching Gift Program, you can make your gift twice as significant. Please contact Gerri Goerke in the Development Office at 203.977.6548 with any questions.
We thank you in advance for all you do to keep us vibrant. We are eager to have you share in our successes in the year ahead. Your thoughtful contribution will be gratefully received and deeply appreciated.
