Your Gift Makes A Difference.

As a local non-for-profit, Burpee relies on the support of the community through donations.  Each of Burpee Museum of Natural History’s successes are due to generous community support.  

Your support is appreciated.  Your gift allows Burpee to support learning, conservation and scientific thought.  Your gift is the GIFT OF SCIENCE!

Give the Gift of SCIENCE!

Dear Burpee Community Supporter,

Thanks to your support, Burpee Museum of Natural History made great strides in financial stability, scientific research, and exhibits.  Because of people like you, Burpee is hip, challenging, exciting, and surging forward like never before! I hope you will continue to support the difference we are making in the Rockford community and beyond.

Your involvement makes Burpee innovative, fascinating, exciting and bold!

Your involvement has allowed us to offer scholarships to over 1,200 youth who would not otherwise be able to afford science experiences in our community: a 300% increase over last year.  Your support has allowed Burpee to develop innovative programs to include new hands-on workshops, new school outreaches, new expedition field programs, new early childhood classes, new museum exhibits and much more.  In 2018, over 80% of every dollar spent went directly to scientific and educational programming and exhibits.  Thank you!

Help us help kids belong to something scientific, hip, and happy!

Help us educate the next generation of scientists and teach them to love our ever-changing, natural, and puzzling Earth and all its inhabitants!  Your gift, will help kids of all backgrounds engage in something hands-on, natural, and 

captivating. Make your gift before December 31 and receive our Burpee Pollinator Kit which includes wildflower and milkweed seeds to sow something scientific, impactful, and gratifying in the spring!

Everyone can belong to something beautiful, evolving, ancient and new!

Thank you for being a critical part of the #BurpeeFamily.  Working together, we will cultivate awesome learning experiences. Please join us in sowing the way for Burpee to grow in 2020 by giving generously to the Annual Appeal.
