Support the Academy
To explore, explain, and sustain life, the Academy depends on contributions from members, donors, and volunteers to operate our world-class museum, create transformative educational experiences, and advance innovative science. See how you can get involved today.
Because we are limiting capacity to keep everyone safe, the Academy continues to rely heavily on donor support. Help us come back stronger with new initiatives, new exhibits, and new educational resources by making a generous gift today.
Our donors make it possible for the Academy to shine as a science leader in California and around the world. Be a partner in our mission and help advance our major initiatives with a gift of $1,500 or more.
Engage with a community of science-lovers while picking up new skills and knowledge. From helping visitors explore and understand our exhibits to diving in our aquarium tanks, there's an exciting volunteer opportunity to match nearly every interest.
While the Academy is thrilled to reopen, the impact of our 7-month closure will be felt for years to come. You can help us inspire new audiences, protect threatened ecosystems, and bring science to students around the world by making a tax-deductible gift today.
