Give & Get Involved!

 There are a variety of ways to give and get involved with The Kaleidoscope Discovery Center. We are a non-profit organization that survives by the dedication of volunteers, community participation and donations. The KDC is a community organization and we only survive if members of the community, like you, say “Yes, this is something I want in my community” and you are willing to donate your time or money to the cause.  Every little bit helps! We accept donations through PayPal, GoFundMe, Amazon Smile and we offer man volunteer opportunities.


The Kaleidoscope Discovery Center is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.  This means we need your support!  Whether you can contribute volunteer hours or monetary donations, you make it possible for us to continue offering STEM education to our service region!


We have set up our Paypal to allow for a one time or recurring monthly  gift. Your support is so appreciated.


Any support that you can give to our non-profit organization is greatly appreciated! No gift is too small!

We just added this giving option. Fees are slightly lower than PayPal (on our end) and it gives our generous donors another payment option.

Amazon Smile

Support is just a click away.  When you use Amazon Smile no additional cost is added for you the shopper, but we receive a portion of every sale.


No volunteer effort is too small. From helping with building maintenance to teaching a class or program, without these volunteers, the Kaleidoscope Discovery Center would not be where it is now. If you are interested in volunteering with us, please complete the appropriate volunteer form or email us.
