MICHIGAN BELL OFFERS $10,000 CHALLENGE GRANT

 MICHIGAN BELL OFFERS $10,000 CHALLENGE GRANT
 DETROIT, Dec. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Michigan Bell today offered a


$10,000 challenge grant to Impression 5 Science Museum in Lansing, Mich. It is intended to help the museum recover from the recent loss of state funding.
 Michigan Bell will provide the funds if the museum can raise a like amount from other sources, said Ken Gruber, Impression 5 executive director.
 Earlier this year, Gov. John Engler vetoed all state funding for Impression 5, a loss of $260,000. Last year's original appropriation was $521,000.
 "No organization the size of ours can absorb the loss of approximately half a million dollars of revenue without incurring significant financial difficulty," said Gruber.
 Impression 5 must raise the $260,000 from the private sector, museum members and other individuals in order to continue to offer the programs that have made the museum one of the top 10 science museums in the country.
 More than 100,000 students and teachers visit the museum annually (170,000 total visitors) from throughout Michigan. "Each leaves with a better understanding and awareness of the world around us," Gruber said.
 Individuals or corporations wishing to help should contact Impression 5 by calling 517-485-8116. All contributions are tax- deductible.
