The Westchester Children's Museum is a not-for-profit cultural institution dedicated to providing enriching educational experiences for children. We are a privately funded organization that relies on support and donations from individuals, corporations, small businesses, foundations, as well as County and State grants. This support enables us to provide educational programs both off site at schools and community centers and within the Museum itself; to offer vibrant interactive exhibits; and to continue growing.
We are all bombarded with amazing opportunities to support charities all over the world. But, your support of the Campaign for the Westchester Children's Museum is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to make a true impact here in our own community.
Children's museums are a celebration of childhood. They help kids develop critical thinking skills in developmentally appropriate informal (play!) learning environments. They strengthen community resources to educate children and inspire lifelong learning. They provide an environment that encourages social and cultural interaction, scientific inquiry, and playful exploration. But we need your help to fully realize this vision.
The Museum recently completed construction to open 6,500 square feet of exhibit space year round, however, this is but a fraction of what we intend to offer in the full 22,000 square feet of available museum space (check out our future exhibit plans). We are now in the midst of a $5 million capital campaign to complete construction and exhibition design. Every gift, no matter the size, helps us grow into our full space even faster.
Donor recognition opportunties are available, please feel free to speak to MaryLou Pagano, Development Director by email or 914-421-5050.
Every gift is meaningful and we appreciate your support.
