Oct. 7, 2008 - PRLog -- SUDBURY, ON -- A new national campaign has been launched with the aim of reminding all of us to consider donating our time, talent or treasure to a charitable cause.

The Thanks & Giving Campaign, launched by Imagine Canada in partnership with CanadaHelps.org, Maclean’s magazine and Investors Group, encourages families to start a new Thanksgiving tradition and reflect on which charities matter to them.  

Volunteers are the life-blood of any organization, and this also holds true for Science North.  Science Centre volunteers dedicate their time in order to ensure that every person who enters our door enjoys a wonderful visitor experience.

Private and public sector donors also play a key role in the enhancement and renewal of experiences within our Science Centre.  Science North is a non-profit, registered charitable organization, and relies heavily on the financial support of the community to maintain vibrant and changing exhibits and programming on an ongoing basis.

There are many ways to give that not only help create ongoing learning experiences, but also contribute to your own personal and financial goals.

A small monthly gift can help feed the animals at Science North or bring in butterfly pupae from around the world.  A Named Giving contribution is a beautiful way to honour the memory of a loved one, or to have your own family name endure in perpetuity.

Science North and its educational programs significantly benefit the community and all of Northern Ontario, and will serve generations to come.

“It’s my favourite place!  My grandchildren were educated at Science North, so whenever special events come up, I like to give back.  Five of my grandchildren have their picture on a butterfly in support of the F. Jean MacLeod Butterfly Gallery, and my son’s name is on a brick at Dynamic Earth.  I’m also hoping to make a donation in honour of Science North’s upcoming 25th anniversary.”
Emmy Frank, Science North volunteer for nearly 12 years
