At the Children’s Creativity Museum, we believe that ALL youth and families deserve access to innovative, affordable programs that are both entertaining and educational.
As a non-profit children’s museum, we rely on the support of individuals like YOU who believe in our mission to nurture the creativity, collaboration, and communication of all youth and families..
We invite you to invest in our kids’ future by making your tax-deductible donation to our Play it Forward Fund today! By playing it forward, you will help us to lead the way in teaching kids creativity in the following ways:
- Developing new programs that train our kids to be creative thinkers and problem-solvers
- Designing and building new exhibits in which kids will be able to imagine, create, and share
- Fostering new collaboration with community partners and research institutions to explore new ways we can provide engaging, creative education kids are not receiving in their classrooms.
Ultimately, YOU are building the foundation for San Francisco’s children’s museum, …an inclusive community space that reflects the City’s rich cultural diversity and technological innovation…a leader in teaching youth creativity and innovation!
Because our budget consists of a healthy mix of revenue from our ticket sales, store sales, memberships, and carousel tickets, as well as our contract with the San Francisco Office of Civic Investment and Infrastructure, 100% of your donation will go directly to the museum’s public and educational offerings for kids and families.
