Giving Tuesday Benny Beaver for donation

Donations are always appreciated. During the Covid-19 Pandemic we had very limited earned income. Emergency grants have been our main resource for keeping the children's museum alive since March of 2020.


Thankfully we have been awarded a $50,000 grant from the Institute for Museum and Library Services which will support us through August 31, 2024!


You can assist with current and future funding needs:

  • Welcome Way Donations are needed to match a $40,000 grant from Maryland Heritage Areas Authority to make CCM’s parking lot safer for children and more eco-friendly. A walkway along the parking lot will have interactive exhibits about the natural world. We hope to have this completed by June, 2024.

  • Outdoor Play Additions to the park encourage outdoor exploration and creative play for visitors of all ages. We have added outdoor music pieces, a boat made of logs, a pair of Whisper Dishes and the instantly popular Truck Pit. We are currently designing interactive stations related to Creativity, with the support of a grant from the Institute for Museum and Library Science.

  • Equitable Access An important part of our mission is to share the museum experience will ALL our children. This covers differing ages, abilities, languages, cultural groups, and economic means. Your donation can fund a family membership to CCM, support field trips for classes from Title One (low-income) schools, or sponsor a community event.

  • Future Financial Security These past three years have been challenging to say the least. Consider endowing the museum with the ability to weather future storms so we can continue to protect and provide for children's essential need to play.
