Fundraiser Ends - A Success!

The “I Gave Ten” fundraising campaign came to a close on December 31. We are thrilled to report that we were able to take full advantage of the $40,000 in matching funds due to the generous donations and support of the Bemidji area, surrounding communities, and far away friends of the Science Center. $40,000 was raised by Dec 15th, but our ultimate goal was to reach $100,000. At the time of this writing we have raised (including the match) about $90,000. THANK YOU to all who have helped us make it this far.

If you would like to help us make it the rest of the way to our goal we will welcome donations at any time. It has been very inspiring and heartwarming to see so many people step up to help insure the continued success of the Headwaters Science Center. It has been encouraging to have so many stop in and offer not only monetary support, but verbal support for what the science center means to them and to this community.

Here’s what people are saying about Headwaters Science Center:

Without a doubt one of the most hands-on, family-friendly science centers anywhere.

I love HSC! I love the people, the exhibits, the programs, the animals… I love the whole spirit of the place! Keep up the great work!

HSC Rocks! (and chirps, slithers, grows, etc.) May HSC continue to touch lives, empower the community and impact the future.

This is an investment in our kids! “The employees and volunteers at HSC are making a difference in so many peoples’ lives! This place is awesome!

Like the Mississippi Headwaters – a source of inspiration for discovery.

The Science Center is a great asset to the community.

A big, hearty, Thank You! goes out to Paul Bunyan Broadcasting, RP Broadcasting, Coyote 102, Minnesota Public Radio, Q107, Paul Bunyan Communications, The Bemidji Pioneer, and the Buyline for helping us get our message out. We couldn’t have done it without you. We appreciate you and the way you support this community.
