In-kind Donations

Because the Wildlife Science Center is a non-profit, we rely on donations from the community to help supplement our regular budget. As such,we are often in need of in-kind donations.  In-kind donations are 100% tax-deductible in most instances.  Please consult your tax representative for more information.  The WSC staff has put together a “wishlist” with items they are often in need of. Make your shopping count by purchasing through Amazon Smile, in support of the Wildlife Science Center.
