Donations & Endowment Fund

You can donate to the Museum for specific purposes:

  • Underserved Students Fund - With your help, the Alaska Museum of Science and Nature can bring thousands of underserved, minority, and at-risk students to the Museum for a once in a lifetime hands-on learning experience.  These funds will allow schools who otherwise would not be able to afford science field trips to send students and teachers to the Museums.  These funds will allow the Museum to provide free admission for any class that wishes to come to the Museum for one of our many hands-on, educational programs.
  • Operating Donations: the Museum gives back to our community, give to the Museum and help us keep the lights on and the heat turned up!
  • Endowment Funds and Planned Giving: Do you love science? Endow the Museum and help us work to bring science to all Alaskans! Call 907-274-2400 for more information.
  • Collections: Have an object you would like to donate? Contact the Executuve Director at for more information.
