Welcome to our Flash Fundraiser, an online 'Non-Gala' event to support our postponed Taste Around the World gala!
Two weeks ago we made the difficult decision to temporarily close our Museum, in the wake of county-wide school closures. Not all school districts are able to offer the same level of support, and many Title-I students are receiving few at-home resources. We quickly pivoted our focus to producing online content for families with children at home, providing free learning resources and activities to keep children constructively occupied and engaged while educational enrichment is limited. Our original online content and live storytimes have reached tens of thousands of virtual visitors across the nation. Friday’s Facebook Live storytime alone had over 1,400 people viewing live, and almost 9,000 views in the following 24 hours. These efforts are a true manifestation of our dedication to educational access for all children.
We have received a generous matching challenge that will match every donation raised this week dollar for dollar, up to $20,000.
$20 = Thank you for your support of our mission and work!
$100 = Thank you for being a dedicated part of our Museum family!
$2,500 = Sponsor Weekly STEM Video Activities
$5,000 = Sponsor Daily Online Live Storytimes
Our nonprofit museum would not exist without the donations of members and supporters investing in our community. Please consider making a donation to the Museum to support our efforts and our staff during this challenging time.
