Support the Academy
To regenerate the natural world through science, learning, and collaboration, the nonprofit Academy depends on contributions from members, donors, and volunteers. See how your support can help us operate our world-class museum, create transformative educational experiences, and advance biodiversity research.
The Academy is reopening, but the impact of our nearly 12-month closure is profound. Help us come back stronger with new initiatives, new exhibits, and new educational resources by making a generous gift today.
Our donors make it possible for the Academy to shine as a science leader in California and around the world. Be a partner in our mission and help advance our major initiatives with a gift of $1,500 or more.
Engage with a community of science-lovers while picking up new skills and knowledge. From helping visitors explore and understand our exhibits to diving in our aquarium tanks, there's an exciting volunteer opportunity to match nearly every interest.
The health and safety of our guests and staff is our top priority. In accordance with local and state public health guidelines, the Academy is closed to the public until further notice. We look forward to welcoming you back soon.
