The Founding Family program is a unique way for families, parents, grandparents, organizations, and businesses to make an impact on the museum campaign and receive recognition on the “Donor Wall” in perpetuity.  The names of all donors who contribute $5,000 or more to the campaign will be permanently and prominently displayed in the museum.  Gifts can be paid in one installment or over a 2-5 year period.  

We will continue to welcome Founding Families until April 30, 2016. We encourage you to make this investment and create this meaningful legacy for your family.

One of our first Founding Families  Supporting the Campaign to build the Westchester Children’s Museum is truly a once-in-a-generation opportunity to create an institution that will serve our children and those most in need for years to come.
