In addition to our four major annual fundraisers – Kid*Vention, Discovery Dash, Boo Bash, and Santa Pancake Breakfast – the Virginia Discovery Museum is fortunate to partner with local businesses and organizations in the Charlottesville-Albemarle area each year on charitable-giving endeavors to raise money and awareness for the Museum and its mission. Proceeds from these fundraising events directly support VDM’s Sponsored Admission Program – including Sponsored Group Visits and scholarships for camps and other educational programs – exhibit creation and maintenance, and free-with-admission programs accessible to all.
