Support The Museum

Annual Fund

Through support of the Annual Fund, we are able to restore all of our airplanes in Heritage Park, host over 7,500 New Mexico School Children in field trips to the museum, explore science with 900 summer campers, bring 3,000 students to the museum for Discover STEM Week and Nuclear Science Week and more.

Your generous support of our Annual Fund will make a difference in the museum, in the community and in the exceptional exhibits we provide for our visitors. Your contribution will help ensure our role as the nation’s resource for nuclear science & history and allow us to deliver high quality programming for which our museum is known.

Your support also enables us to continue delivering science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education programs for students and teachers both at the museum and through outreach to the Albuquerque community.

From the museum’s Board of Directors, staff and volunteers, thank you for helping inspire our future generations of scientists and engineers.

Your gift to the Annual Fund will support:

  • $50 – STEM education supplies
  • $75 – Healthy snacks for school and camp programming
  • $100 – Museum admission for 10 kids
  • $250 – School bus to bring 50 students from Albuquerque Public Schools
  • $500 – Museum outreach to public schools in Albuquerque and beyond
  • $1000 – Admission for 100 students from APS for Discover STEM Day and Nuclear Science Week
  • $5000 - Helps us paint, restore and maintain our airplanes
  • $10,000 - Brings 1 traveling exhibit to the museum for 3 months+

Contact our Development Director at 505-245-2137, extension 110, or lfraser@nuclearmuseum.org for further information about the benefits of supporting the Museum in this manner.
