Donations are always appreciated. During the Covid-19 Pandemic we have been challenged to serve our audience while following CDC guidelines and everyone's concerns about contagion.
This has meant very limited earned income.
Emergency grants have been our main resource for keeping the children's museum alive since March of 2020.
Here's where you can assist with current 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. Construction is expected to start in July 2022.
Outdoor Play Additions to the park encourage outdoor exploration and creative play for visitors of all ages. We are planning for more outdoor music pieces, a hillside slide, a boat made of logs, replacements for steps on the nature trail, a small stage platform. Share your ideas and make a final contribution to make them possible!
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 two 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.
