The Story

OUR HUGE THANKS TO ALL DONORS FOR SUCH GENEROUS SUPPORT!!! Thanks to you we reached our campaign goal - which will help us reach our larger goal for the Lock 3 expansion!  Keep up with us on our website and Facebook -- AND WATCH FOR NEWS OF OUR OPENING SOON!

 

 

 

Our goal to bring kids a safe, inspiring place to explore, create, imagine, and interact--in an environment designed just for them--is now within reach!  We just need a little help to make it happen, so we're reaching out far and wide to our entire community.

 

If you’ve longed for a place like this to bring your kids, grandkids, the children you care for -- or if like so many others, you see the indisputable value in having a children’s museum -- know that your gift of any size WILL help make this a reality.  

 

Thanks to four WILDLY generous donors (acknowledged below), $40,000 of the funds raised through this campaign will be matched 1:1 (so your $25 becomes $50)!!!  The $80,000 (or more!) raised will  apply to our overall fundraising goal of $350,000 -- and will  help cover the cost of high-quality, interactive exhibits and site improvements at Lock 3. Importantly, it will also help us open our doors very soon.

 

As a "thank you" for your participation (beyond our endless gratitude) check out the PRIZES tab!  We've put together a few special items to say thanks for your help with this critical step in ACM's development. 

 

We know people are passionate about this project. We've heard from you, and you've supported our efforts so far in so many ways (thank you). Now it all comes down to our Lock 3 expansion plans.  Any and all gifts will help us get there.  Thank you, again and again.

 

THIS IS SUCH AN AMAZING COMMUNITY, LET'S RALLY FOR LEARNING THROUGH PLAY! 

 

A MILLION THANKS to the very special donors who provided matching pledges (and made this campaign possible):

  • Roger Read, in Memory of Judy Read
  • The Maynard Family Foundation & Phil Maynard
  • David and Barbara George
  • The Gotshall and Hartschuh Families

 

PS:  Check out our awesome new video on the left too, to learn more about ACM and the impact you can have.  (Special thanks to Tim Conway of Legion Media for helping us create a piece that helps tell our story perfectly!)  We'll keep you updated on campaign progress -- stay tuned!
