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.

2015 Revenue Sources

COSI also receives help from community and organization volunteers.

In 2015, COSI had 10,423 volunteers contributing 121,584 hours (about $1.6MM in value)!

In addition, our Board of Trustees, Community Board, and Young Professionals Board 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.
