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.

The purpose of the SCC is to enhance scientific and cultural opportunities for the public through collaboration and synergy.

 .​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

Our primary goal is to create programs together that address the SCFD statutory criteria:  

​All programs are monitored through monthly meetings

​Alliance Project partners with schools in all 7-counties

​Using joint funding to provide educational outreach and training

​VIP card provides a volunteer reward incentive for members

​Training meetings for professional development

​The Joint Database, Directory, and Roundtable meetings


Pathways funding provides assistance for libraries, hospitals, schools to receive programs, workshops, assemblies, bus transportation
