  • Family-To-Family Membership

The Family-To-Family membership originated when two family foundations; the Kulynych Family Foundation I, Inc. and the L.B. Lane Family Foundation, approached Catawba Science Center with the idea of providing scholarships to financially challenged families. Families may apply for either family membership or partial scholarships to CSC’s Summer Fun summer camp program. Last year, this scholarship supported over sixty annual family memberships and admission for children to CSC’s Summer Fun.
