Corporate Giving Membership

Invest in happiness. Invest in wellness.

A growing body of evidence shows that institutions like science centres and museums can benefit individual health and well-being in their role as public forums for sparking curiosity and learning, and by helping people to make sense of the world and their place within it. Whether it's sharing photos from their day out, or talking about the exhibits they experienced, these interactions will become part of what makes your workplace culture great.

Creating connections is good for people
and so is giving back.

Corporate giving strengthens our community, and we welcome your support. As a Corporate Member, your business serves as a vital community partner in helping to support exceptional exhibitions, curiosity-driven experiences and diverse educational programming.

For your generous support, we offer a number of perks including complimentary admission for guests, savings on IMAX® and Planetarium tickets, plus discounts at our concession stands, and gift shops!

The Bluecoat Ball

bluecoat ball

COMING MARCH 7, 2020!

In 2018, funds raised at the Bluecoat Ball helped us to reach 1,000 children from underserved communities. In 2020, we plan to reach another 1,000 locally.

By bringing outreach programs and recreational science camps to an underserved segment, Science North provides children with access regardless of financial situation. 

Our goal is to give children opportunities to be creative, think outside the box, find their passion, and realize that science is everywhere.

What impact have Science North Summer Camps had on Sudbury and communities within Northern Ontario?

  • They have created a positive lifelong relationship with STEM fields by inspiring children to ask “What if?” in a safe and engaging environment.
  • By reaching children before they begin making career choices, they help provide experiences which can inspire careers in STEM fields.
  • They allow children to stay in their own communities for diverse learning experiences, increasing opportunities and recreation for families.
  • In 2010, we visited three First Nation communities and engaged 1,800 people. In 2017, we reached close to 4,900 people in 44 First Nation communities—all because of support from people like you.

Proceeds from the 2020 Bluecoat Ball will help to sustain our reach. Will you help us meet our goal?
