Make An Impact

There are many ways to support the Museum and bring the magic of Comic- Con to visitors all year round. While our doors will not officially open until 2021, gifts made now will go toward outfitting our Education Center, creating an online Museum experience, planning dynamic exhibits and programs, and to building the most amazing pop culture museum in San Diego’s Balboa Park.

The Roddenberry Foundation Donates $100,000 to the Comic-Con Museum

Thank you to the Roddenberry Foundation who provided the Comic-Con Museum with a $100,000 donation that will go toward supporting our 2021 opening! The Foundation’s namesake, Gene Roddenberry, was the creator of Star Trek, and the non-profit Foundation supports his legacy through initiatives that encourage innovative approaches to create a more inclusive, progressive, and harmonious society. The donation also coincides with the year of the late Gene Roddenberry’s centennial, or 100th birthday.

The Foundation has planned a year filled with initiatives celebrating Gene Roddenberry’s legacy and supporting a permanent museum that celebrates pop culture and the creative nature of the human spirit is a fitting way to honor the legacy of Gene Roddenberry and all those who #ThinkTrek in 2021. 

In recognition of this generous gift, the Museum’s main lobby will be named after the Roddenberry Foundation.  Gene’s son, Rod Roddenberry also serves on the Comic-Con Museum’s Capital Campaign Steering Committee.

Thank you to the Roddenberry Foundation for their generous support!
