Annual Appeal

Annual Appeal gifts from friends of the MOST help to provide funding for exhibits, education programs and ongoing preservation efforts to ensure that each year over 100,000 children and adults can visit the museum and experience its educational resources and learn as they discover and play. Thanks to an anonymous donor, your contribution of $2,000 or more will be matched dollar for dollar, making your efforts twice as impactful!

Planned Giving

The MOST offers planned giving opportunities for donors interested in long-term philanthropy. Well planned gifts help the future of the MOST. For more information on planned gifts, please contact Lauren Kochian, President, at (315) 425-9068 x2122.

Honor & Memorial Gifts

Making a memorial or honor gift to the Museum is a meaningful way to pay tribute to someone or commemorate a special occasion.

Acknowledgements of all memorial and honor gifts, regardless of size, are conveyed to the honoree or the honoree’s family without revealing the amount of the contribution. The individual being honored, or the family of the person being remembered, receives a list of all donors who have made tribute gifts.
