Support the Museum – Donate!

The Marion Natural History Museum relies in large part on the donations of its patrons to continue its operations. With your contributions we have been able to expand our curriculum-supporting programs, which are greatly appreciated by area school children and teachers alike.

If you would like to make a tax-deductible gift to help sustain and expand the Natural History Museum's educational programs, please click the link below to donate via PayPal — it's quick, easy, and you can use your credit card!

Thank you for your contribution to life-long learning for all ages throughout our community!
