Season’s greetings to all HSC members, supporters, volunteers, staff, and board! I’d like to use this space to thank all of you for your commitment to supporting high-quality, informal Science, Technology, Engineering, (Art) and Math (STE(A)M) in Northwestern Minnesota! HSC is invested in, and committed to, the people of Bemidji and the surrounding region because of the support we receive locally.

Donors are critical to supporting our mission, as we are a not-for-profit organization and receive no operating support from Federal, State, or Local governments, nor do we receive support from a national or regional science museum organization. We are supported locally by individuals who choose to support our mission through annual giving, businesses who provide sponsorships for various activities, and our loyal visitors and members.

Individuals who choose to make a gift to HSC make a difference in the lives of the 13,000 school children who participate in an HSC activity either at their school or on our exhibit floor. 100% of donations made to HSC stay right here to support our organization. There are lots of different ways to support HSC. We have openings on our board of directors for individuals who are willing to donate 10 hours per month to supporting our mission through governance. Friends of Headwaters Science Center, a new group of volunteer ambassadors, also seeks new members to help with HSC events and outreach. If you don’t have time to commit to a volunteer position, we always welcome the donation of an item from the wish list that is posted on our website.

Did you know that the best way to support HSC doubles as the perfect family gift? That’s right! A $65 family or grandparent membership supports the programs and activities that we do every day and gives
you FREE admission to our exhibit floor for a year, a 10% savings on merchandise in the HSC Science Store, and discounts on summer camps, Science Club, and birthday parties. In addition to all the amazing benefits listed above, your membership is portable and provides reciprocal admission at over 350 science centers worldwide through the Association of Science-Technology Centers (ASTC) passport program. Stop in today and find out how you can support HSC and enjoy the benefits of membership.
