Last year’s fundraiser generated $1.3M to support educational programs that reach thousands of students and educators worldwide. This year, all proceeds from Afterglow and our Party at the Piers gala will go to community programs that help expand the Exploratorium's influence beyond the museum’s walls. By supporting Afterglow, you are also helping the community organizations that foster the Exploratorium's growing connections, both locally and around the world.

Interested in sponsoring Afterglow? Please email Suzy Varadi, Associate Director for Corporate Engagement, for information on corporate engagement and marketing opportunities at this incredible fundraiser.
