Dear Burpee Community Supporter,

Burpee Museum of Natural History has made great strides in 2018. We  are deeply grateful and hope you will continue to support our momentum.

Burpee has something special.

We are unique in the region- we advance natural science through research, emerging learner outreach and citizen science projects. Your support  has helped us bring scholarships for programming to over 300 impoverished children in 2019 who would not otherwise enroll in Burpee classes.Your support has grown our outreach and innovation to make 3D images of our collections a reality. Your support has started an engine of natural science learning and collaboration right here in the greater Rockford Region!  Thank you!

I am counting on your continued support.

I am asking you to help us push Burpee Museum to a new level.  We’ll continue to make a difference by creating programming that touches the lives of learners of all ages, abilities and backgrounds by doubling the number scholarships offered.  We want to make our collections to be available to all learners from any location: the classroom or the home through our 3D images.  We want all kids to see an augmented reality version of a dinosaur claw, an extinct bird, or beaver skull from anywhere using our new Burpee App. We are close to making this a reality, and we need your help!

Your gift will provide innovative science learning opportunities to local school children and will make natural science learning for all ages tangible and possible in exciting new ways.  Please join me and Burpee’s Board of Trustees in bringing natural science to life for everyone!

Give the gifts of science this holiday season.

The impact of your gift is amplified by exciting innovation at Burpee.  From new programming to innovative new collaborations, we are bounding forward on a rising tide of energy. We are asking you to help give the gifts of science joy, exploration, and opportunity! Please consider being a part of our growth with your gift to this year’s Annual Fund.

Help us soar.

Now is an awesome time for Burpee Museum of Natural History! Please join us in paving the way for Burpee to soar in 2019!
