4 min read

A year after launching a $40 million funds marketing campaign to fund a large-scale expansion of the Cox Science Heart and Aquarium, campaign leadership declared Thursday that it plans to double that goal.

An $8 million gift from hedge fund supervisor Ken Griffin coupled with a $10 million award from the state of Florida final summer season has pushed the marketing campaign goal to $85 million, Cox Science Centre Board Chairman Lew Crampton said.

In November 2021, Cox Science Centre and Aquarium declared its original money campaign and a $5 million endowment initiative. The heart changed its identify to mirror a $20 million lead gift from Palm Beach inhabitants Wendy and Howard Cox.
