About the SCC  


     "Doing Things Together
                       We Could Not Do Alone" 


The Scientific & Cultural Collaborative (SCC) is a non-profit organization comprised ​of cultural organizations funded by the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District, a cultural tax in the 7-county area that funds over 300 organizations.


The Scientific & Cultural Collaborative utilizes membership fees from Tier I and Tier II SCFD organizations to provide services to the members and larger community.


MISSION; SCC empowers scientific and cultural organizations through collaboration and capacity-building for the benefit of the public.


VISION: Together we will be leaders in advocacy, collaborators on opportunities and challenges in our fields, and providers of access to rich artistic, scientific and cultural opportunities for all members of our community.


 ​Since 1994, the SCC members have worked together by investing a portion of their SCFD awards into joint education and public awareness ventures. In essence: "to do things together that we could not do alone” through collaboration, regional service, and accessibility
