Corporate Support

Corporate SupportBuilding a future workforce. Supporting the Science Museum of Minnesota helps ensure a quality science education for all students. Studies show most entry-level jobs in the next decade will require a basic level of science literacy. Careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematic fields are growing faster than other fields, and even during the current recession those careers earned 26% higher salaries and experienced lower unemployment. And we're helping diversify the field, too. 65% of female and minority engineers and scientists report visits to science museums as an important influence in nurturing their interest in science. Our programs, from early childhood to young adult internships, contribute to an educated, curious, and equipped workforce for future generations.

Building your customer base. Corporate philanthropy builds the reputation of your business and invests in our community. Research shows that companies, large and small, that donate to causes are perceived better and have more social goodwill, both by employees and by customers. Strategically support your business objectives, increase your employee engagement and loyalty, and cultivate a socially responsible brand by partnering with the Science Museum.

Corporate SupportHave fun. In addition to the intangible advantages of supporting the Science Museum, corporate donors have the ability to receive museum benefits, such as admission passes, invitations to special events, corporate volunteer activities and other unique opportunities.
