Support the Extraordinary
Whether you enjoy the serenity of our nature trails, the dynamic programs we offer adults and children, the model educational benefits we provide school children and families, or the broad range of our Museum exhibitions, we are so grateful that you value the Stamford Museum & Nature Center.
Our continued growth in all of these programs and services depends on your donations. Please know that membership and program fees cover only a portion of our operating expenses. Your investment in us through an end-of-year gift is meaningful. Please consider a special gift this year of $100, and if you can do more, be as generous as you can.
We are proud to share our annual achievements highlighted in the 2014.15 Annual Report.
Year-end Annual Appeal giving is powerful. Your 100% tax-deductible contribution directly supports everything we do, including: an exciting exhibition schedule that will feature LEGO Star Wars® universe, A Billion Bricks 3: Galactic Travels; EXTREME ART: Massive & Miniature oversized canvases of abstract art by noted artists exhibited in contrast to the extraordinary Spitz Collection of hand-painted miniature portraits; and KITES: Science and Art in Flight, a colorful exhibition of international kite design and construction exploring the scientific principles of aerodynamics. Your support is vital and it insures us to continue to be a top-flight cultural, recreational, and educational resource enjoyed by nearly 200,000 visitors this past year.
- Our art exhibition programs welcomed 47,295 art and culture enthusiasts.
- Our SM&NC-Aligned-With-The-Schools and After-School education programs served nearly 35,000 students with 16,000 coming from underserved school districts.
- Membership, corporate volunteer programs, and exhibition attendance all saw robust growth last year, making 2014.15 a great success overall.
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.
