Joining the Membership Circles is a great way for you to combine membership benefits at one of the world's most prestigious science museums with a charitable gift that will help enrich the lives of hundreds of thousands of children.

Membership Circles members represent a group of people who are highly committed to bringing science and technology learning to the largest audience possible. Your generous support of the Membership Circles helps to fund field trips, curriculum development, outreach efforts, enrichment and mentorship programs, specialized educational opportunities, museum workshops, exhibit design and maintenance, and curatorial preservation.

Join today, and...

...your gift of $400 will enable 35 students and 5 teachers from a financially challenged school to visit The Franklin Institute for free and enjoy world-class exhibits and programming

...your gift of $600 will provide materials for 275 dissections, helping future physicians, biologists, and veterinarians learn about anatomy in a unique museum setting

...your gift of $1,000 will cover the cost of admission for 67 underserved families, allowing children and their parents to explore the museum side-by-side and develop their love of science and technology together.
