The National Science Institute gladly accepts donations of science, technology, and arts related equipment and supplies.
We love receiving equipment for use in our facility. For information on the deduction process, please see our Basics of Donations.
You can drop your donation off at our facility any day Monday-Saturday from 10am-7pm. No appointment is required and you do not need to call in advance. You can also consider having us pick it up.
If you can’t make it to Grand Rapids and want to ship your donation, we can receive shipments from USPS, FedEx and UPS. We have a forklift and can receive UPS Freight shipments, but please let us know in advance so that we can coordinate with UPS to receive the shipment during our business hours.
If you’d like to help but don’t have tools or supplies to send us, we do have an Amazon Wishlist set up, and the contents change regularly. We also, of course, welcome items that are not on the wishlist. The list just makes it easy. 🙂
Our shipping address isThe National Science Institute Donations 902 Leonard Street NW Grand Rapids MI 49504
We have a donation form that we request be filled out with every shipped donation. It can be found HERE.
This list is not comprehensive, and it is intended as a guide. If you have donation questions we encourage you to call us at 616-466-4335.
