Thank you for thinking of the Discovery Center.
- Requests by phone or email are not accepted.
- Each organization is limited to one donation per year.
- Please provide a self-addressed, stamped envelope for our donation to be sent in.
- Due to the number of requests, we ask that you do not contact us about your donation request.
Nonprofit organizations seeking donations, please review our donation policies and complete our request form. Download Donation Request Policies and Form Here.
We evaluate applications based on the following guidelines:
- The recipient must be a 501c3 nonprofit organization in the southwest Missouri region. If your organization is a 501c3, a copy of the 501c3 letter from the IRS must accompany the application in order for your request to be considered. This letter comes from the Treasury Department and is different from a state tax-exempt form.
- The application must be received at least six weeks before the event date in order to be considered.
- We cannot accommodate multiple requests from the same organization or organizations outside the southwest Missouri region. Past support of an organization or event is not a guarantee of future support.
