Make your gift go further!

If your company offers a matching gift program, this is a great way to maximize your gift to the Discovery Center of Idaho. Local companies like Hewlett Packard, Micron, Intuit and Docusign are just a handful of companies that match their employees’ giving. Thus, you double your donation. Depending on your company’s Matching Gifts program, your employer may match:

  • Individual donations made through an automatic payroll deduction; you may choose a one-time gift or monthly contribution
  • Gifts made through our website
  • Donations made through the mail: 131 Myrtle St. | Boise ID 83703
  • Contributions made at our annual Science with Style Gala (NOTE: Only the charitable portion of ticket sales or auction items applies). Have questions? We’d be happy to help you!
  • Gifts made through a Donor Advised Fund

SUPPORT THE DISCOVERY CENTER OF IDAHO

We encourage people of all ages to actively participate in activities that foster lifelong STEM learning. Educational programs like Young Discoverers and summer camps offer hands-on exploration, and we get to see adults rekindle their passion for the sciences during special events and exhibitions. And that, that spark of learning and excitement, is why we do what we do.

There are many ways that you can play a part in helping the Discovery Center of Idaho remain a viable, valued asset to our community. Donations from charitable individuals and corporate sponsors help fund special programs, new exhibits and more. Our volunteers, who give selflessly of their time and knowledge, enhance our guests' experiences. And you, the members of our community, play an important role when you purchase an admission ticket or membership. With your support, we can preserve and promote our mission.
