Supporting STEM-based outreach and education is easy!

Both cash and material, non-cash donations help us fulfill our mission of delivering fun, STEM-based education and outreach to Idahoans.

Material donations may be new, old, outdated or just plain broken. We’ll either refurbish them to sell, use them in our workshops and outreach, dismantle them for parts and/or recycle them responsibly. Businesses, institutions and individuals are all invited to participate. As a registered 501(c)(3), Reuseum Ed can provide donation receipts for both consumer and business donations.


Donations to Reuseum Educational Inc. can be made at the Reuseum store located at 3131 W Chinden Blvd, Garden City ID, 83714 during business hours Monday – Saturday, 10 AM to 6 PM. Donors may be able to write off the value of their donations on their taxes, but it’s important to consult with a tax professional to determine the exact tax benefits of a donation. The exact tax benefits will depend on a number of factors, including the value of the donation and the donor’s tax bracket.
