Give Local DeKalb County!
Join in a 24-hour crowdfunding event, which provides critical funding for nonprofits throughout the country. Last year, Give Local DeKalb County raised nearly $120,000 for 38 local nonprofits. Every donation given to the Museum through Give Local DeKalb County will be matched proportionally by a $50,000 match provided by DCCF, DCNP, and community partners. Each donation is tax-deductible! Your generosity helps to feed and care for our live animals, educate over 2,500 students a year, create new exhibits, and so much more. Don't miss out on your chance to make a huge difference in helping MMNH remain a community anchor. Click here to go directly to our Give Local page!
