Giving Tuesday!

This year, the Greensboro Science Center is excited to participate in #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving. #GivingTuesday is a day that celebrates and encourages giving in an effort to bring people together to give something more to their communities.

Your gift to the Greensboro Science Center helps to create a place where our visitors learn that science is exciting and adventurous. Whether it’s exploring the world of dinosaurs with Dr. Indiana Bones, encountering our tigers face-to-face, or engineering robots with one of our LEGO® robotics clubs, there are opportunities for learners of all ages to discover something new.

The recent success of SKYWILD, a complete reinvention of our Museum, the transformation of the SciQuarium into the renamed Wiseman Aquarium, and the expansion of Animal Discovery Zoo are creating a host of new reasons for folks of all ages to visit the GSC!

Please consider supporting the Greensboro Science Center on this #GivingTuesday. We appreciate your generosity!

What is #GivingTuesday?

Now in its fourth year, #GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Observed on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving. Since its inaugural year in 2012, #GivingTuesday has become a movement that celebrates and supports giving and philanthropy with events throughout the year and a growing catalog of resources.

Chipotle “Chips In” to Support the GSC

Make dinner a selfless act by joining Chipotle Mexican Grill for a fundraiser to support the Greensboro Science Center. Stop in for dinner at Chipotle on Westover Terrace and Battleground Ave. on Tuesday, November 19th, from 4:00pm to 8:00pm, and bring this flyer*, show it on your smartphone or just tell the cashier and they’ll donate 50% of the proceeds to the GSC’s Animal Enrichment Fund.

The GSC’s Animal Enrichment Program has been carefully crafted by zookeepers to enhance animals’ lives by providing objects designed to increase their natural behavior, such as digging, foraging and problem solving. As the GSC’s animal collection continues to grow, the organization is seeking funds to purchase additional enrichment objects that will continue to provide the highest quality of life possible for each animal.
