Frost Science is much more than a building – science happens here. In unprecedented times like these, investment in science is more crucial than ever. Our commitment to our community has never faltered, and our commitment to science education has never been stronger. However, with the loss of revenue from being temporarily closed, we cannot continue our work without your support. We understand now is a trying time for all and we appreciate any help you can provide. All donations, however small, will have an immediate impact.
At a time like this, the needs are many. Your donation today will support the most important work that we do, including:
- Conservation science and coral research, including the restoration of wetlands and coastal habitats
- Animal care and the rehabilitation of birds of prey and other vulnerable avian species
- Study and protection of threatened marine organisms
- Free virtual Frost Science@Home educational programming
- Contributing to global scientific research efforts to fight diseases such as COVID-19
Science happens here but we can’t do it without you. Thank you for your commitment to science education and research.

*The Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act allows donors to receive a federal income tax deduction for charitable contributions. This makes it easier to give and save at the same time.
For taxpayers who do not itemize their deductions, the CARES Act allows such individuals to deduct a cash contribution not to exceed $300 made to certain qualifying charities “above-the-line” in computing Adjusted Gross Income (AGI). Thus, the taxpayer is allowed to deduct up to $300 plus the Standard Deduction. For taxpayers who do itemize, the new law temporarily increases the limit (60% of Adjusted Gross Income) on charitable giving for 2020. Charitable contributions in 2020 will be allowed to be deducted up to 100% of the taxpayer’s AGI, with any excess contributions available to be carried over for the next five years. For corporate donors, the 10% charitable giving limit of adjustable taxable income would increase to 25%. Please note, the above information is a general summary only and is not intended to be tax or legal advice and should not be relied upon as such. Your tax situation is unique, and you should consult your qualified tax or financial adviser to determine how the CARES Act may apply to you.
