COMMUNITY PARTNERS

SCSM Foundation Logo

The new and improved South Carolina State Museum is here! Now is your chance to take advantage of all that the museum has to offer by investing in your community!

Your support includes a variety of wonderful opportunities and benefits that will showcase what makes the State Museum one of the premier educational and entertainment facilities in the Southeast.

The Community Partner program is an annual corporate membership and you and your employees will enjoy many tangible benefits, along with marketing your company as a strong supporter of the arts, sciences, and culture of our state.

The impact that your community partnership has on supporting our local museum far exceeds the cost of the donation. For more than 26 years, the museum has been offering the latest in science and technology to students and guests while preserving and showcasing South Carolina art, cultural history and natural history. And now with the new planetarium, observatory and 4D theater, the value and opportunities the museum will provide to its guests will be endless.

Please consider becoming a Community partner and supporting the Foundation! Call 803.898.4935 or email karen.hall@scmuseum.org for more information.
