Join us for the largest global giving day of the year—Giving Tuesday!

November 29, 2022

We’re thrilled to join thousands of organizations across the globe participating in the largest giving day of the year. Our organization has set a goal to raise $10K in just 24 hours—It’ll be a group effort to get there, but the impact your donations will have is incredible.

Your Giving Tuesday gift impacts every aspect of the Discovery Center of Idaho. It boosts access for Idaho students to experience quality, hands-on STEM educational opportunities. It guarantees fresh and engaging exhibitions. It delivers memorable and positive hands-on learning, which helps inspire future career paths in STEM fields for Idaho’s next generation.

This Fall, nearly 1,500 students attended subsidized STEM field trips and we were thrilled to provide over 1,200 slime kits to enhance their hands-on learning. This December, we’re planning to host nearly 600 students through our Field Trip Program and distribute close to 600 additional slime kits. 

Your donation means we can shape young minds in our community with quality STEM education. This Giving Tuesday, give to the future STEM leaders of Boise by giving to the Discovery Center of Idaho.
