About COSI

Financial Information

COSI is an independent, not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization that supports science education through many initiatives. Unlike many not-for-profit organizations, COSI only receives a small percentage of public or government operating funds.

2014 Financial Stats

COSI also receives help from community and organization volunteers.

In 2014, COSI had 11,429 volunteers contributing 117,485 hours (about $1.6MM in value)!

In addition, our Board of Trustees, Advisory Council, and Friends of COSI donate significant amounts of time to help further COSI's science education mission. If anyone can capture the attention of today's youth and inspire future generations of life-long learners, COSI can.
