The Science Center is a small independent nonprofit, and support from community members like you make our center possible. Animal sponsorships are an easy means to help us cover the cost of all our animals' food, shelter, and veterinary care. These sponsorships make wonderful gifts and allow our animals to live in comfort. Donating just $5 can help us feed one of our animals for a week. Help make a difference in your community by sponsoring an animal. Together, we can continue to fill children's lives with wonder and the magic of science through our animal presentations.

Benefits: Sponsorship benefits include your name/logo on the Science Center website Animal Sponsorship page, quarterly newsletter, and on your animal's cage, reduced admission on ECSC events, 10% off gift shop merchandise, and a meet and greet with the animal you sponsor. 

Cost: We have a wide variety of animals at the center, all with various levels of food and shelter requirements. Due to the nature of our sponsorship benefits, we do ask if you sponsor an animal that it is for a minimum of 12 months. If you would prefer a one-time animal donation, please click here; if you'd like to donate individual items to our animals, please click here. To sponsor an animal, please fill out the form below.
