Support our backyard transformation! 

Great news! Thanks to the community's generous support, We MET THE BATCHELOR FOUNDATION CHALLENGE! We just completed construction on the brand-new, 18-hole Miniature Conservation Golf Course which is NOW OPEN for public play. Phase 2, including the new outdoor exhibit spaces, is scheduled to be completed by 2018. For more information on the Batchelor Foundation challenge that helped to make this possible, please see below.

We are always working to make the Science Center a better place and have big plans for the future. Your continued giving through donations, no matter the amount, go a long way here at our museum. Please click the "Donate Here" button to learn more! 


The Batchelor Foundation issued a $250,000 challenge grant to create a brand new backyard... so every dollar you donate will go toward the challenge and your gift will be doubled!

Our new backyard now includes The Conservation Course, an 18-hole miniature golf course designed by Jim Fazio and Gary Nicklaus. Also planned is our Forever Florida Science and Nature Trail, as well as amazing and engaging experiences like a Physics Forest, Music Station, Splash Pad and Human Sun Dial.

Every donor will be recognized on our website as well as listed on a permanent plaque placed in the backyard upon completion. Please help us build this unique space which will enhance YOUR South Florida Science Center and Aquarium.

The Science Center relies upon the generous support of our members, residents within the community, corporations and foundations, and through campaign programs for special projects, planned giving, endowment, and special events. No amount of support is too small. We accept tax-deductible donations via check, credit card, stock transfer, and automatic bank payment. To donate, please click the "Donate Here" button, submit the form and a Science Center representative will contact you shortly.

Four Star Charity 

The South Florida Science Center and Aquarium is proud to be recognized as a four star charity by Charity Navigator, America's premier independent charity evaluator. Charity Navigator works to advance a more efficient and responsive philanthropic marketplace by evaluating the financial health of America's largest charities.

Charity Navigator rates charities by evaluating two broad areas of financial health - organizational efficiency and organizational capacity. Using a set of financial ratios or performance categories to rate each of these two areas, Charity Navigator issues an overall rating that combines the charity's performance in both areas. Charity Navigator ratings show givers how efficiently they believe a charity will use its support today, and to what extent the charity is growing its programs and services over time.
