Powerhouse brings inspiring science moments to life for kids and their families in the Sacramento area!
We're pleased to announce that this holiday season, a generous donor has pledged a $10,000 matching gift. That means your donation is "matched" --dollar for dollar, up to $10,000 -- now through December 31. A gift of $50 becomes $100. A gift of $250 becomes $500... you get the idea. There's never been a better time to make a charitable contribution toward the science moments Powerhouse helps kids experience!
