We are proud to recognize and thank donors and sponsors who support the Ontario Science Centre through philanthropic contributions.

Donor Spotlight

Bruce Poon Tip is a long-time supporter of the Science Centre through his volunteer role on our Board of Trustees, his personal generosity and his enthusiastic participation in our events and programs.

As the founder of community tourism pioneer and small group adventure operator G Adventures and its non-profit partner, Planeterra, Bruce works with local communities and development organizations to support sustainability and social enterprise projects. With his work, Bruce helps ensure travel is used as a force for good and that travellers have enriching and memorable experiences. Bruce has also brought this commitment to operational excellence and environmental sustainability to his role as a Science Centre Trustee, through which he inspires and encourages us to be bold in how we engage our audiences.

“I am humbled and honoured to have the Living Earth Hall named after me,” says Bruce. "At G Adventures, it’s our mission to change lives through travel and to deliver incredible experiences that inspire wonder while ensuring local communities’ cultures are respected and that they benefit economically. A visit to the Living Earth Hall is a chance for children to also be inspired about caring for our Earth and local communities.”

Over the years, Bruce has donated numerous trips and bid on various items to support the RBC Innovators’ Ball and eAuction. He has also been an enthusiastic participant in our donation challenges. We are delighted to acknowledge his innovative leadership and support by renaming the Living Earth Hall in his honour.
