As a not-for-profit organisation, the Science Centre & Planetarium relies on the generosity of the community, including sponsors and individuals, to assist with our success. This financial support contributes to the maintaining of our planetarium and science theatre, allows for new exhibits and travelling exhibitions that visit the Centre, and helps fund the development of our internship program. There are a number of ways to support the Science Centre:
As a self-supporting organisation, memberships are one of the most important avenues of income for the Science Centre & Planetarium. To become a member please see our memberships page.
Corporate sponsorships and partnering with the Science Centre assists in maintaining the centre as a valuable and interesting educational resource for the Illawarra and the wider community to enjoy. Sponsors are formally recognised for their support with the Centre, with the option of Gold or Platinum sponsorship available. To become a corporate sponsor please contact us.
Donations from individuals are another important way to support the ongoing work of the Science Centre. If you would like to donate to the Centre, please contact us.
