In addition, your gift supports the Institute’s many exceptional science and technology education programs for students, educators, and families that take place at the museum and in the community. Because your donation supports the Institute’s non-profit mission, it is 100% tax deductible.


Honor and Memorial Gifts:

A donation to the Annual Fund is also an excellent way to honor or memorialize friends, family, and business associates while supporting The Franklin Institute's mission. Your contribution is 100% tax deductible and will be acknowledged with a personalized card sent to the honored individual/family. Your kind gesture will also be recognized in The Franklin Institute's Annual Report, unless you choose to remain anonymous.

Many companies choose to match their employees’ donations. Learn more about how matching gifts can double your impact.
