    Annual Fund and the Charles Darwin Society

    By making an unrestricted gift annually, you can help the Academy continue to develop and implement compelling public programming and aid overall operations. Donors who make a financial commitment of $1,000 or more annually become members of the Charles Darwin Society, which entitles them to exclusive events and access privileges within the Academy.

    Science & the City Insider's Package

    If you bundle your donation with a subscription to the current year’s Science & the City series, you will receive tickets to all five talks plus access to special events and other services.

    Planned Giving

    By making a planned gift to the Academy, you will ensure that we continue to serve future generations of scientists and the public. Donors who remember the Academy in charitable bequests are recognized as Sustaining Members and invited to join the Lyceum Society.

    Employer Matching Gifts

    Many corporations match the gifts their employees and retirees make to charitable institutions. Please ask your firm’s human resources department for a matching gift form and submit it to the Academy along with your contribution. By doing so, you could double or even triple the impact of your gift to the Academy.
