MPM Fund

Now through Giving Day on April 24, gifts to the MPM Fund will be matched by two generous donors! Your gift will have DOUBLE the impact!

Thank you for being a member! You can make a difference today by making a donation (above and beyond membership) to the MPM Fund. A gift from members like you helps to protect and preserve collections, underwrite educational programs, and support scientific research.

More than 500,000 visitors – including more than 140,000 students and children – benefit from MPM’s programs, events, and exhibits each year.

  • Exciting learning opportunities for all ages such as our Science on Tap educational lecture series, Mystery at MPM family and adult events, and visitor engagements with Museum docents.
  • Connecting the community to nature through the BioBlitz event which identifies and highlights species diversity in urban natural areas.
  • Free programming and field trips for every MPS 3rd grader (about 7,000 students) that tie to their science and social studies curricula.
  • Maintaining a strong research program through our curators, adjunct curators, and research fellows, who actively work in our collections and scientific labs.
  • Increasing accessibility through creating signage in English, Spanish, and Hmong and providing inclusive programming.
  • And so much more!

We thank you for your support. By making a gift beyond membership to the MPM Fund, you join a select group of Museum supporters – people committed to making a difference in the community. Gifts from members help us to ensure that MPM continues to evolve in meeting the needs of all visitors regardless of age, income, or ability. We appreciate your support!
