You Matter

YOU Matter!

Do you realize how much YOU MATTER to the South Florida Museum? YOU fuel engaging programs and exhibitions for inquisitive visitors and students. And YOU MATTER tremendously to each rehabilitating manatee in our care. Manatees like Baca.

Without the support of donors and friends like you, we would not have been able to be there for Baca and others like him.

As a friend of the Museum, we’d like to say thank you by offering you our new 2019 Discovery Society benefits at the 2018 membership rates. Make a gift before Jan. 1, 2019 and you can opt in to receive enhanced Discovery Society benefits for all of 2019*!

Or choose to make a gift with no benefits and receive a full tax deduction for 2018. (You can also gift your benefits to a loved one — a perfect holiday gift that will last all year.)

For example: Your gift of $100 (a Friends membership in the current member program) before Jan. 1, 2019 will give you Pathfinder benefits for all of 2019.

As part of the Discovery Society, you’ll join a community of supporters who are dedicated to understanding the world around us, exploring Florida’s natural history, and helping manatees in need-who enjoy the Museum and genuinely value our role as an educational and cultural resource and asset to our community’s quality of life. With your annual contribution, you may opt-in to receive new Discovery Society benefits that correlate to your best gift.
