We do it for them.

Help us inspire South Carolina school children to “AIM HIGH” by donating today!

Dear Friends,

Aim High.

These were the words spoken by General Charles Duke, a South Carolina astronaut who walked on the moon, when he chose the State Museum as the place to watch the once-in-a-lifetime total solar eclipse. As he looked out over the crowd of 35 school children, his message of reaching for the stars inspired the leadership at the museum as much as it did the young students attending that day.

His words could not be more symbolic of the current mission of the South Carolina State Museum Foundation. As we embark on the next year of empowering young minds, we will be setting our sights on being the best and the brightest by making life-changing impacts on South Carolina children. Our goal will be to instill General Duke’s
message in every young mind that walks through our doors. The message, that with determination and a dream, we all can succeed.

The demands of educating nearly 70,000 students that visit us annually, with state-of-the-art equipment and technology, are demands that change with each year. We need your help, to help us reach the stars. It is the State Museum’s top priority that we are meeting state educational standards and any financial support you can provide helps us maintain that standard of excellence.

Help us inspire South Carolina school children to “AIM HIGH” by donating today!
