Founders Circle 

Your support can make a difference and change the lives of children in our community. We built a Museum to inspire children and visitors of all ages to envision their futures and dream big. A place that encourages kids and “kids at heart,” to become scientists, designers, engineers, and beyond. Support from our community helps inspire the next generation of innovators – the kids of today who will take us to Mars, find a cure for cancer, and motivate all of us to create a better and brighter tomorrow. All it takes is the small spark of “wow!” when they visit the Perot Museum for the first time.

Join us and support a mission that will have a lasting impact on our future, and more importantly, our children’s future.
