Many of the Academy’s science research projects are funded by the National Science Foundation.
The Careers in Science program is supported in part by the San Francisco Department of Children, Youth & Their Families.
Academy exhibitions, such as Earthquake, are supported by foundations, corporations, individuals, and government agencies.
Our generous foundation and government partners provide critical support for initiatives that extend the Academy’s impact within the Bay Area, and far beyond.
