Our Funds

Our goal is to continue to provide SAS for free to families, so every dollar goes to helping students gain access to Science Adventure School. Your monetary donations will go directly towards your choice of student support in one of these areas:

  • WV Science Adventure School Fund (2W135): All donations received to this account will go directly towards student tuition. Each dollar raised here translates to more students accessing SAS. It’s important for us that the program is never cost prohibitive for students who need it most, and we can only achieve that with your help.  

  • Science Adventure School Student Assistance Fund (2W1595): Because we encourage all students to attend SAS from every walk of life, it is common that we encounter students who may be lacking the clothing, shoes, or other gear needed for a fun and comfortable week at SAS. Donations received to this account will go towards being able to purchase necessary items for students so that they don’t just have, for example, a warm jacket or shoes that fit while at SAS, but they can take it with them when they leave.
