Community Membership

In order to make Science Factory programs and services accessible to all members of the community, the Science Factory is pleased to provide financial assistance to organizations who serve children, families, and people with disabilities who are unable to afford regular Science Factory admission fees.


Each year the Science Factory is able to offer a limited number of community memberships.  The Science Factory’s goal is to assist all those who request and qualify for assistance; however, we may not be able to accommodate all requests.  Requests for community memberships will be approved on the basis of eligibility and the availability of funds.  Requests will be handled on a “first come, first served” basis. 


Community memberships are supported locally by Manley Foundation and the Eugene Elks Lodge #357.
