Sci-Port Discovery Center — your science center and named the Best Science Attraction for Kids in Louisiana — is participating in a 24-hour online giving challenge led by The Community Foundation of North Louisiana. This day of giving, known locally as Give for Good, is scheduled for Tuesday, May 2, 2017.

Their Challenge
The Community Foundation is challenging the citizens of northwest Louisiana to raise money for nonprofits in our community and they will provide a proportionally matched for every gift made.

Our Challenge
We’re challenging you to Give for Good and Do it for Science by helping us raise money for informal STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics) education in our region. Funds raised through this day of giving — May 2 — will help us continue to provide STEAM education for our community’s children.

What We’ll Do With Your Gift
The cost of operating Sci-Port is $26 per person. Students on field trips pay just $6. Your gift offsets the cost to serve one student on a field trip and allows us to keep their prices affordable.

Other ways to help:

Start the Commotion Prize
Select “Going” on The Community Foundation’s Give for Good event on Facebook and be entered into the prize drawing. One person will be selected at random at noon Monday, May 1 for a $500 donation to the participating nonprofit of their choice! 

Facebook Logo Contest
The nonprofit with the most “Likes” on its logo as of Monday, May 1 will receive a $500 prize. The logo contest is on The Community Foundation’s Facebook page. Please do not use another reaction other than “Likes.”

What Happens Next

The Community Foundation, through a national pool and their "Lagniappe Fund," will add to every gift received. (The more we raise, the more lagniappe we get!) There are also hourly cash prizes and prizes for most unique givers, night owl givers and more.

What your support means to us

In a word, everything. We will say thank you and be sure to recognize everyone who Gives for Good and Does it for Science, though we can’t ever say thank you enough. Your gift will touch lives by bringing the joy of learning and science to thousands of families and children. Your gift may just inspire a child today to become the next great scientist of tomorrow.

Thank you in advance for your support!
