Giving Tuesday


You have the opportunity to be a part of an international initiative that is sweeping the globe with positive changes spurred by one individual at a time. November 28 is #GivingTuesday and it's one of the most impactful days of the year!

I invite you to join the Children’s Discovery Museum for #GivingTuesday to make an impact right here in Central Illinois.

Since opening our doors in Uptown Normal, we have fulfilled our mission of inspiring the love of learning through the power of play for 1.7 million visitors.

However, we know that there are children in our community that miss out on experiences to learn through play because of limited financial resources. Last year the Children’s Discovery Museum provided nearly 1,000 scholarships to disadvantaged youth.

With your help and financial support, we can expand the Children’s Discovery Museum’s scholarship fund to serve even more in 2018:

  • Your gift of $14 provides an afternoon of play and memory-making for a child and their guardian.
  • An investment of $45 underwrites the cost of day-camp participation for one youth. 
  • A gift of $100 provides a hands-on, educational field trip for 20 low-income students.

No matter the size of your gift, your support has the power to make a profound impact!

Your gift sparks curiosity and inspires discovery. Your donation could change the future for a child.

Thank you for your support which warms the hearts and inspires the minds of children in our community.
