Support Kidzu Children's Museum
Since 2006, Kidzu Children’s Museum has nurtured the creativity and confidence of thousands of area children. Throughout these months of uncertainty, Kidzu has continued to provide activities, programs, and resources for children and families throughout our community via our Kidzu@Home webpages.
The health and well-being of our visitors, our staff, and our families continue to be our top priority. In November 2020, we began welcoming families back to the museum, under strict safety and health protocols, with a staff eager and ready to engage in what is sure to be restorative play.
We are counting on donations from friends like you who understand the important role Kidzu plays in the lives of so many children. This has been a challenging time for everyone. We hope you’ll consider making a contribution to help Kidzu provide access to play and educational activities for our community. Your donation is a gift that goes beyond Kidzu’s doors. Thank you for your participation.
**Kidzu is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. Your donation is tax-deductible to the extent the law allows.
We hope you and your loved ones are well – and gearing up for an exciting summer. Can you help us reach our summer fundraising goal of $50,000 by the end of July. Kidzu is still feeling the impacts of COVID-19 every single day. We hope to carefully return to full capacity over the summer, but we continue to carry the full financial burden of keeping the Museum open and fully staffed. That means we need your help now more than ever.
In the past two and a half years, we have created a virtual museum, transitioned into a virtual and in person hybrid museum, and developed ways to keep both models functioning at high levels. We’ve done it without the backbone of our traditional earned revenue because we have had to limit attendance numbers to keep visitors and staff safe. Earned revenue traditionally accounts for over 50% of our operating income each year. In order to continue to serve our community at the highest level, we need your support. Your generous donation will support initiatives like:
-Our Winter Wellness campaign
-Our ongoing and constantly evolving virtual museum
-Over 20 new robots and other interactive technologies into Kidzu’s Makery
-Our Refugee Campaign
-The Nest and our Outdoor Learning Garden by partnering with Families & Communities Rising Early Head Start
Now more than ever – play matters. Thank you for supporting Kidzu during this unprecedented time. We wish you and your loved ones continued health and a fun and fulfilling summer.
