Annual Fund

YOU can make a difference! Cranbrook Institute of Science relies on individuals like YOU to assist us in influencing the scientists of tomorrow. The great thing about giving to the Institute is that all gifts have the potential to make an impact. Gifts of all sizes can collectively allow the Institute to:

  • Provide unique hands-on activities
  • Maintain science education programs, both on and off site, that allow us to champion science education and connect with learners of all ages and backgrounds
  • Inspire over 180,000 people throughout Michigan through the objects and artifacts from the Institute's world-renowned collections
  • Participate in free-admission programs such as the Museum Adventure Pass program so that we can reach new local audiences
If YOU make a gift of any size, the Institute, local students and visitors will benefit. Never underestimate your power as an Institute donor!
Promoting science continues to be responsible for innovations that have improved the landscape and economy of American life. From medical breakthroughs to technologies that we utilize every day as well as the recent job creations from a growing Green Economy in Michigan, science education reinforces the important role the Institute offers in fostering scientific discovery.
