On behalf of the staff and boards of the Virginia Museum of Natural History, we want to thank all those who have supported the museum this year through tax-deductible Discovery Fund donations, VMNH Memberships, Corporate Partnerships, volunteer contributions and more. This generous support directly benefits students, families and others who take part in vital museum programs. Although 2013 is coming to a close, our fiscal year ends June 30, so we are excited to continue our success in spring 2014. In the meantime, it's not too late to make a gift before calendar year 2013 ends by visiting http://www.vmnh.net/donate-now. Thank you for your support!
