Support Explora now or on November 27 and join
a global celebration of giving!

Observed on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, #GivingTuesday connects individuals, organizations, and communities around the world to celebrate and encourage giving. Explora is proud to join over 200 New Mexico nonprofits in recognizing our community’s amazing generosity and the real difference it makes in our state by participating in #GivingTuesdayNM. Together, we can harness the collective power of giving to address local challenges.

Donations made to Explora as part of #GivingTuesdayNM will empower discovery, spark creativity, and inspire innovation through high-quality exhibit activities and educational programs. Explora is honored to serve our community as a trusted resource for discovery and lifelong learning. We are also proudly independent, and rely on the generosity of foundations, corporations, and individuals like you to thrive. Gifts of any size help us deliver standards-based educational programs to over 80,000 students throughout our state and provide interactive exhibits that allow 300,000 museum visitors to engage in hands-on STEM learning annually.

This holiday season, give the gift of discovery to more of New Mexico’s children!
On behalf of the thousands who will experience the pure joy of learning at Explora through your support,
THANK YOU!

Inspire the Next Generation of Scientists and Inventors
