Fresno Discovery Center is a non-profit (501(c)3) organization, so everything you donate is 100% tax deductible. All our programs and daily operations are funded through admissions, field trips, our gift shop... and donations! 

Our mission is to ignite curiosity and imagination in Central Valley youth by providing hands-on STEAM experiences. We believe that education, particularly in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math (STEAM), is vital to improving the quality of people's lives and that the circumstances of your birth should not limit your educational opportunities. So we strive to be a valuable resource for all ages, regardless of income, to explore and discover STEAM subjects and potential careers. 

Fresno Discovery Center depends on community support now more than ever. During COVID, museums and science centers took a very hard financial hit and we are no exception.
