Midlands Gives

Tues., May 4 from 6 a.m. – Midnight

The South Carolina State Museum Foundation is participating in 18 hours of giving during Midlands Gives on May 4. Midlands Gives brings the region together as one community, raising money and awareness for Midlands nonprofits during the online giving challenge.

Support the South Carolina State Museum During Midlands Gives

We know this last year has been a challenging time for our community and the State Museum values your ongoing support, which is now more vital than ever.


Over the last year, our dedicated museum team has created scores of new virtual programing opportunities to support teachers, students and parents adjusting to online learning. Virtual programs such as our “Telescope Livestream,” “Family Astronomy Nights,” and “Virtual Day Camps” have given thousands of participants from around the state and beyond interactive access to all the museum has to offer from the comfort of their living rooms.

The museum also typically welcomes more than 65,000 public school students a year – for FREE! The South Carolina State Museum Foundation works to provide much needed financial support to the museum, which helps ensure each student’s visit is fun and educational.


We’d like to ask for your help to assist the Foundation in supporting the mission of the South Carolina State Museum during this 18-hour giving period. Gifts from friends just like you will be vital in assisting the museum and allow us to provide even more great content in the future – both on site and online.

Plus, if you give during the Aflac Power Hour, between 10 – 11 a.m., on May 4 you can help maximize our donations.
