The Extraordinary Give

When You Give A Little Extra,
Extraordinary Things Happen!

Support the North Museum TODAY

Let your inner scientist come out to play at the newly renamed North Museum of Nature and Science! While our College Avenue home is closed for renovations, the Museum is providing free programming at Nano North, our temporary location at Water and Chestnut Streets in downtown Lancaster. Your contribution supports all our educational efforts. The Museum will reopen in 2015 with a new state-of-the-art planetarium, a new Nature Explorer Gallery featuring live animals, and more dinosaur exhibits!

Our friends at the Lancaster County Community Foundation are once again providing an initiative to provide EXTRA dollars to support local organizations. From 12 midnight to 11:59 p.m., every dollar you donate to the North Museum at www.ExtraGive.org will be stretched by a $250,000 contribution from the Community Foundation (+ $50,000 in incentives and prizes!).

The Extraordinary Give will allow friends of the North Museum to defy the laws of nature by getting out more than you put in! In the process, you’ll enhance the educational exhibits and programs about science and nature that have benefited Lancaster for over 60 years.


On November 21, make an online gift to the North Museum at www.ExtraGive.org. Be a part of Lancaster County’s largest day of giving!
