Why Support The Franklin Institute?


The Franklin Institute is a non-profit science center that relies on a variety of funding sources to carry out its mission. In the spirit of inquiry and discovery embodied by Benjamin Franklin, the mission of The Franklin Institute is to inspire a passion for learning about science and technology.

There are many ways to support The Franklin Institute:

» Fully tax-deductible charitable donations
» Memorial/tribute gifts
» Upper level memberships
» Planned giving
» Corporate giving

We appreciate the generous support from each and every donor. As The Franklin Institute looks to the future, we are dependent on your support and enthusiasm to continue to inspire a passion for science and technology in future generations.
