To explore, explain, and sustain life, the Academy depends on contributions from members, donors, and volunteers to operate our world-class museum, create transformative educational experiences, and advance innovative science. See how you can get involved today.
The best way to support the Academy during our temporary closure is with a tax-deductible donation to the Academy Relief Fund. Your gift will support the animals you love—and the heroes that have been caring for them throughout the COVID-19 crisis.
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.
Please contribute to the Academy Relief Fund today to support world-class research and science outreach, expert care and enrichment for our nearly 40,000 live animal residents, and fresh educational resources at a time when young minds need them most.
