Seacoast Science Center
Seacoast Science Center strives to be part of the education solution. We believe that science-based education holds the key to inspiring conservation and bringing restorative, positive change to our environment. The Seacoast Science Center brand of science education is interactive, personal and fun. In 2022, we will continue to advance these strategic priorities: elevating our visitors’ experience by providing rich engagement opportunities that increase understanding of the natural world and our influence on it; ensuring our museum and programs are accessible and welcoming to all; providing camp scholarships to children in need, including transportation and meals; and advancing our Marine Mammal wildlife conservation and education work.
High-profile fundraising and community events are held throughout the year. Our 2022 calendar includes the Rescue Run: Race for Marine Mammals 5K trail run in Odiorne Point State Park; World Ocean Day Celebration; Music by the Sea Summer Concert Series; our 30th birthday celebration special event; and BioBlitz, a dawn-to-dusk science-based “scavenger hunt” within Odiorne Point State Park. These ticketed, signature events provide corporate partnership opportunities as well as individual major giving opportunities.
Seacoast Science Center cultivates financial partnerships and in-kind volunteer opportunities related to its programs, exhibits and events. These partnerships help us broaden our reach and support our core programs while providing brand exposure for corporate partners who demonstrate their commitment to conservation education. Individual gifts in support of our annual fund through our giving societies provide ongoing, critical funding. Planned gifts, major gifts and memorial gift programs are also available.
Seacoast Science Center was built on a strong foundation of volunteerism, and the tradition continues. As teachers and ambassadors, volunteers play an essential role in advancing the Center’s mission to inspire conservation of our Blue Planet. Volunteers deliver educational programs, serve as exhibit interpreters, help plan and facilitate community events, work on special projects, assist administrative staff and more. Approximately 750 volunteers donate over 17,000 hours of service each year, for a total value over $430,000.
