Become a Sustaining Donor

Perennial Partners are an extraordinary group of the Nature Discovery Center’s most passionate supporters – people just like you!

Sustainer (or monthly) giving is the simplest and most efficient way to support the mission of the Nature Discovery Center. Regular contributions will help the Center do more while reducing our fundraising and administrative costs. If your company matches donations, you can double your impact.

How it works:

— Decide an amount that is right for you and set up a monthly gift (using the form below) to help us ensure operations and programs all year long.

— You’ll receive less mail because we do not need to send you reminders – which means more of your donation directly supports the park and programs!

— And you’ll receive special Perennial Partner benefits including:

  • Wildlife Supporter level Nature Discovery Center membership (see Membership benefits here)
  • Exclusive updates on new initiatives and programs
  • Early access to Pumpkin Patch tickets (see below)
  • Videos from “the field” that give behind the scenes insights into kid’s programs or other work

— You can easily stop your gift by phone (713-667-6550)

Every Amount Counts!
