Donor Circles: Discovery and Innovator

The Bay Area Discovery Museum has two Donor Circles, Discovery Circle and Innovator Circle. When you give a gift to one of our Donor Circles, you join a distinguished group of leading Bay Area Discovery Museum patrons whose support is essential to carrying out the Museum's mission: to ignite and advance creative thinking for all children.

Through generous, tax-deductible gifts of $1,000 or more, Discovery and Innovator Circle donors enable us to reach more children and their families with our unique programming and engaging exhibitions designed to spark creativity and foster innovation in young learners.

Your Gift Provides:

  • Educational programming, such as Messy Art, nature hikes with Park Rangers, and scientific exploration in the Outdoor Learning Lab
  • Access for children and families from under-served communities through discounted or free admission, subsidized field trips and scholarships to our award-winning camps
  • Unique permanent and special exhibitions that encourage children to develop physical and intellectual risk-taking skills

Enhanced Benefits at Every Support Level

When you join one of the Museum's Donor Circles, you receive an annual membership, including free year-round admission to the Museum (except during Goblin Jamboree Family Fundraiser in October and Snow Days Family Fundraiser in December) for two named adults, all of the children in the household and two guests per visit. Your membership also gives you discounted admission to over 180 children's museums nationwide.

You are also entitled to:

  • Three family guest passes
  • Early Discovery Camp registration
  • A subscription to our quarterly newsletter and monthly email newsletter
  • Discounts on our award-winning Birthday Parties and Discovery Camps; on Discovery Theater performances and guest admission tickets; and at the Discovery Store and kid-friendly business throughout the Bay Area
