Made @ The Tech

Spring 2015

Thank you!

In a thousand ways big and small, The Tech’s donors, volunteers, and friends make a difference in our community every day. Your gifts show in a budding engineer’s furrowed brow as she constructs a “building” that can withstand an earthquake. And a teacher’s newfound enthusiasm as he learns new ways to engage students in STEM. And a young entrepreneur’s tears of pride at The Tech Awards, as the ballroom booms with cheers for her.

All of these moments are possible because of the supporters we honor on the following pages. On behalf of the innovators who benefit from the very real impact of your generosity, we offer our sincerest thanks.

Annual Report summary



Total revenue for The Tech Museum of Innovation, including in-kind, for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2014, was $20.8 million and included $2.1 million of contributions to The Tech 3.0 capital campaign. The highlight of the fiscal year was $11.5 million in contributions representing 55% of total revenue. Earned revenue from ticket sources such as general admissions, tickets to traveling exhibitions and special-event facility rentals accounted for 33%. Public support from the City of San Jose equaled 12% and included both a general operating subsidy as well as the value of donated space occupied by the museum.

Strong revenues and an expense level of $19.2 million resulted in a surplus for the year. This surplus will primarily be used to renovate exhibits and enhance the overall visitor experience. 76% of The Tech’s expenses were allocated to programs, 13% to marketing and administration, and 11% to fundraising.

This strong financial performance helped the Tech retain its four-star rating, the highest possible, by Charity Navigator, America’s leading independent charity evaluator.
