2023 Goals:

In 2023, SEE will work to expand and sustain its Inclusion Initiatives. Through multiple efforts, SEE is working to create a welcoming space for visitors regardless of their background, abilities or income. The initiatives include hosting the MCAC (Manchester Community Action Coalition) tutoring program for BIPOC students, and SEE’s Access Pass for individuals with cognitive and physical disabilities. SEE is looking forward to serving more Title I students with field trip programs than ever before. Work is underway to add new exhibits and expand SEE’s multilingual accessibility. Families can continue to enjoy the Science Center through regular admission, birthday parties, Storytime Science and SEE camps.

Fundraising Events:

SEE hosts three major fundraising events annually: The Champagne Putt is a mini golf tournament held at SEE during the winter months; a traditional Spring Classic golf tournament is held in June; and SEE Celebrates, A Night of Giving and Discovery, is an invitation-only gala hosted by SEE founder, Dean Kamen. SEE also plans to hold a Kickoff to Summer event for families with a week of themed activities at the Science Center. Sponsorship is available at various levels for all events.

Giving Opportunities:

SEE welcomes support from individuals and businesses in the community and contributions may be made on the SEE website, via traditional mail or by phone. SEE accepts unrestricted donations; exhibit sponsorships; Inclusion Initiative contributions (benefitting marginalized communities); and major, planned or in-kind gifts. Individuals donating $1,000 or more annually are recognized as Satellite Donors with special events and recognition.

Volunteer Opportunities:

There are many ways to help SEE continue to serve the community. Volunteer positions and opportunities are listed on the SEE website and can be discussed by calling SEE.
