What is the AMSE Foundation?

The American Museum of Science & Energy Foundation was chartered in September 1996 and organized to further the cultural, educational and scientific programs of the American Museum of Science & Energy Museum (AMSE). The Foundation’s purpose is to assist in the operation and development of the museum, which seeks a broad public, private and volunteer support base. As a 501(c) (3) corporation, the foundation’s tax exempt status provides an added benefit when seeking financial and other donations. The foundation is governed by a 20 member Board of Directors.
