Donate

Donate today to keep learning in play!

Your donation to the Children’s Museum means families will be able to continue learning through play for years to come!

The Children’s Museum relies on gifts from individuals, organizations, corporations, and foundations to serve more than 400,000 visitors each year. In fact, nearly 32% of the cost of operating the museum last year was provided through gifts from 300 individuals and nearly 100 organizations throughout Central Virginia.

Any gift, large or small, helps make a difference. Here’s how:

Annual Fund

Gifts designated to the Annual Fund allow the museum to continue serving our community and may be used however needed in support of the museum’s mission.

Access for All

Our Access for All program makes it possible for low-income and at-risk children, families, and schools to receive free and/or reduced access to the museum’s resources. This includes single day admissions, Scholarship Family Memberships, field trips, caregiver education, and age-appropriate books, all as a part of our goal to provide growing access to the museum for those who need it most.

Book Bank

Gifts to the Book Bank allow the museum to purchase new books whenever the Book Bank’s needs outnumber the books being donated by members of the community. These gifts become particularly helpful when bilingual books are requested!
