No Donation is Too Small
To help alleviate the economic devastation caused by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Congress has enacted the Coronavirus Aid Relief and Economic Security Act (CARES Act). Among its many provisions is a brand new universal deduction for charitable contributions. Taxpayers who don’t itemize may now deduct up to $300 per year in charitable contributions. Such deductions must be: in cash (no property like old clothing), and given to a 501(c)(3) public charity.'s

Added four new STEM based exhibit pieces including an Air Chair, Flight Tube, Air Harp, and Magnetic Ring Launcher
