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 many 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!
