M.A.R.S. is a pioneering new men's philanthropy group that will champion the importance of science and technology education within our community. The mission of M.A.R.S. is to raise one million dollars by bringing 200 men together who will each pledge $5,000 or more in support of the new Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science.

M.A.R.S. will provide opportunities for South Florida leaders to promote the positive economic impact that occurs in communities where investment in science and technology is emphasized and prioritized. Together M.A.R.S. men will collectively and boldly promote awareness for the new Museum's Space Science exhibits and programs and build momentum for the museum's 2016 opening.
