|March 9, 2010||Posted by jamie under Non-Profits||
The Exploratorium has received two anonymous gifts totaling $90 million to help pay for renovations of Piers 15 and 17 and the construction of their new location along San Francisco’s waterfront, according to an article in the San Francisco Chronicle. The funds are conditional based upon the museum raising another $40 million from other donors. This will be the biggest project along he eastern waterfront of San Francisco since AT&T Park.
This is great news for SoMa waterfront residents who will be a short walk away from another cultural and educational destination! Another gem along the waterfront, so-to-speak.
