There are many ways to support Catawba Science Center.

Partners in Science support CSC’s science education programs for visiting school children. Eleven categories of classes are available for sponsorship.
Sponsors of the Earth Science programs support classes such as, “Rock Hounds” and “Earthy Matters.” Biotechnology sponsors support the “DNA Detectives” class, and Biology/Plants & Animals sponsors support classes like “Animal Innards” and “Creature Features.”

All of CSC’s traveling exhibits are funded by sponsors, each receiving recognition on museum signage and rack cards, through news releases, and in CSC’s newsletter.

Permanent exhibits often have sponsors, as do special programs during the year. Sponsors also enable CSC to offer new and exciting digital planetarium and laser light shows.

A CSC gift membership is a special way to remember friends and family throughout the year, as are gift certificates to the Science Shop. Year-end gifts to CSC are always greatly appreciated during December.

CSC is accepting members for its Legacy Society, which allows philanthropists to donate a portion of their estate. Legacy Society members receive special recognition on a plaque in one of CSC’s lobbies.
