Donor Circle ($1,000+) - Bay Area Discovery Museum

Donor Circle ($1,000+)

Extending the museum experience beyond our physical site is one of the most important ways that the Bay Area Discovery Museum contributes to its community. Donor Circle Members are crucial to that mission; by supporting our access programs, Donor Circle Memberships make it possible for underserved families to participate in the critical learning and educational activities that happen both on-site and off. With your support, we are able to offer discounts on museum admission, school visits, Try It Truck visits, and other BADM programs so that all children have the opportunity to participate in these positive early-learning experiences.
