Sustain Access for Low-Income Families                              at the Children's Creativity Museum

Together, What Will We Create?

Our world has changed immensely since 1998 when we first opened. A generation of children has grown up animating, designing, and performing in our museum and theater. Many of these children are now the creators, inventors, and leaders - and in some cases even parents! - shaping our society. 

As we celebrate our 25th Anniversary, we are thrilled about the impact we’re having on children and families in our community! Young people collaborate and cultivate a creative mindset using analog and digital tools. Families from diverse backgrounds have safe spaces in which they laugh and find common ground. Everyone has a place where their stories and ideas matter - and what we envision for our collective future becomes possible. 

These creative confidence-boosting experiences are available to all, regardless of income. We are proud to be the largest provider of Museums for All access in San Francisco (as a percent of total attendance¹) with nearly 25% of Children’s Creativity Museum visitors receiving free admission. Developing creative confidence in tomorrow’s leaders² lays the foundation for our future and for all of San Francisco. But we need your support to sustain this crucial level of service to our community.
