Linharda Balinsky began as a Museum volunteer in 1981, but she was a member for many years before that. She has always been interested in science and math education, especially teaching youngsters who are growing up with limited educational resources. “The Museum welcomes everybody. It’s a comfortable place to come and learn,” she says. “When I was a teacher, the Museum was my favorite place to bring my students. I especially appreciate the Museum’s wide range of programs. There is something for everybody.” Nearly every year, Linharda funds a charitable gift annuity with the Museum. “I get an income tax charitable deduction and income for the rest of my life, and I am happy that my gifts will support the Museum’s wonderful programs for many, many years to come.”
