Your donation lights a spark that continues into world-changing careers and a lifetime of learning
In Tampa Bay, only MOSI reaches 500,000 people a year with the unique blend of fun and learning that's so critical to capturing a child's curiosity and lighting the spark of inspiration toward a career in STEAM -- Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math.
Yes, MOSI is fun -- but that fun is the gateway to a lifetime of learning that makes our community brighter, economically stronger, and safer -- as we're more ready to take on the unknown challenges of the future.
Please, explore the Community Impact that MOSI makes each and every year, and consider using the links below to donate to MOSI and power a nonprofit in Tampa Bay that's making a difference today, tomorrow, and beyond.
Dr. Gladys Kashdin was a champion of MOSI for nearly four decades. Believing that all science is creative, Gladys taught the people she came in contact with to look carefully and creatively at everyday wonders of nature. An early Board of Directors member, small of stature with indomitable spirit, she assisted with MOSI’s 1977 move to its current Fowler Avenue location and changing its name from the Hillsborough County Museum to the Museum of Science & Industry, as befitting a modern science center.
As the years passed, Gladys created a way to continue making an impact on the organization and community she loved, becoming a charter member of MOSI’s Infinity Circle of legacy and endowment donors. Her legacy and spirit live on through each and every guest who sets foot in the Welcome Center that bears her name and hosts many events and exhibits to inspire the next generation of STEAM professionals.
