The Rice Northwest Museum of Rocks and Minerals needs your support and #GivingTuesday, November 29, 2016 is a great time to contribute. Your tax deductible donation will help us continue the great programing and events at the museum.
With your help the Rice NW Museum has become recognized as one of the top 10 mineral museums in the United States. We reach over 11,000 students annually with programs and tours designed to inspire future scientists from all walks of life, and our displays and activities attract nearly 27,000 visitors. Our staff educate young and old alike on the key role earth sciences play in our everyday life, and in our future well being. None of this would be possible without you.
#GivingTuesday gifts go directly to supporting our staff in their efforts to expand educational programming, preserve and exhibit our fabulous mineral specimens and our beautiful historic house, and inspire thousands to pursue science.
This year, #GivingTuesday falls on November 29, 2016. We’ll spend that day encouraging our supporters to spend just a little time reflecting on how their gifts and talents can best be used to help the Rice NW Museum. We’re asking for a little of your time as well. Please consider giving a gift to support our operations so that we can grow and share our passion with our community.
It’s easy, just grab your credit card and mouse and give to the museum by:
- Donating to help keep the museum the best in the Pacific Northwest and globally
- Become a member and join the Rice NW Museum family of supporters
- Sponsor an event, rock or mineral, or an exhibit at the museum
- Volunteer to help with the many projects and activities around the museum for a few hours or on a regular basis
After you give, join the #GivingTuesday conversation on November 29th. Share your thoughts online about the importance of giving back and see why others support the Rice Museum and are thankful for our mission.
Thank you for helping on this #GivingTuesday, and we look forward to seeing you often at the museum!
