Giving Societies

Distinguished members of the Giving Societies provide critical resources toward the presentation of special exhibitions, IMAX® films and cultural and science enrichment programs directly serving 400,000 families and children through unrestricted gifts to the Annual Fund. By joining one of the Giving Societies, you are building the legacy of Fernbank's founders who led the effort to preserve Fernbank Forest as a school in the woods for nature study, which today is realized through Fernbank Museum.

Fernbank presents an extraordinary travel experience to Naples and Rome, curated by E & E Travel Society, Exclusivity and Excellence.
