As a nonprofit organization, the success of Thinkery relies on the generous support of individuals, businesses and people like YOU.

Special thanks to our Campaign Donors and Annual Supporters for their generous gifts. Please see our Annual Report that outlines Thinkery's impact and community engagement for the 2016-17 fiscal year.

Open the door to Thinkery at the Meredith Learning Lab for children who wouldn’t otherwise have the chance to explore Austin’s newest home for “how” and “why.” Your gift as an Open Door Society Member provides outstanding programming and a place where science smiles for Austin’s growing number of families in need.

Thinkery changes the way families in Austin learn and play. Each visit yields new unique personal insights and cherished memories for more than 450,000 visitors each year. This year alone, Thinkery is committed to fundraising almost one million dollars to ensure this extraordinary experience is accessible to our entire community through our Open Door Initiative.

As a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization, gifts are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. For information on how you can make a tax-deductible gift to Thinkery, please contact Jessica Hernandez, Director of Development and Marketing, at

Thinkery is funded through a combination of philanthropic gifts and earned income. Additionally, the museum is funded and supported in part by a grant from the Texas Commission on the Arts and by the City of Austin through the Economic Development Department/Cultural Arts Division believing an investment in the Arts is an investment in Austin’s future.
