The Mt. Pleasant Discovery Museum is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization that would not exist without the contributions from our generous donors. All money that is raised through donations, grants, door admissions, and special events help support the exhibits and programs we offer here at MPDM.
Giving through our Annual Fund will help us support many aspects of the Mt. Pleasant Discovery Museums including day-to-day operations, events, program development, exhibits, repairs and maintenance and so, so much more.
The Mt. Pleasant Discovery Museum provides those in need family memberships through our Helping Hands Scholarships. You pick the amount and we will add it to our Helping Hand Scholarship Fund. Example: a $500 donation could give up to 125 kids the opportunity to explore, learn, create, and grow at the Mt. Pleasant Discovery Museum!
Help MPDM make a lasting impact on youth in mid-Michigan and beyond. Your contribution to our Endowment Fund will help to provide opportunities for young people to explore, learn, create and grow for many years to come.
