Ford Gives $400,000 Donation to Michigan Science Center

Ford Gives $400,000 Donation to Michigan Science Center WESTLAND, Mich - After the doors closed to the Detroit-based Michigan Science Center back in 2011, there seemed to be little hope of ever seeing the science center open again. That is until Ford Motor Company, DTE Energy Foundation, General Motors, and Toyota stepped in to save the day. On top of a previous $100,000 that was given last year, Ford gave a generous $400,000 donation to the Michigan Science Center

The Michigan Science Center was given a second chance to provide educational and interactive learning to children and their families in December of 2012. Millions of dollars in philanthropic support came from 25 different organizations successfully gave the facility a new life. Ford Motor Company is a huge supporter of STEM education (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) and donated a large sum of $400,000 to the science center that will be distributed over a three year period. 

Ford, DTE, EM and Toyota will assist the Michigan Science Center in budgeting their donations as it implements the center's outreach programs. Ford believes deeply in the importance of engagement and interactive learning for the next generation, especially when it comes to science and technology. Which is why they continue to do what they can to aid in the success of the Michigan Science Center.

Ford Gives $400,000 Donation to Michigan Science Center Since the re-opening, the center has seen roughly 384,000 people walk through the doors, which includes special events, educational programs, and facility rentals. The science center is beyond grateful for all of the generous donations and is looking to utilize the contributions to reach out to more children and families. Ford giving $400,000 to the Michigan Science Center will make room for vast improvements in the center and assist in boosting Detroit and Michigan's economies.
