Visionary Donors

The New Children’s Museum is grateful for our Visionary Donors, whose collective giving has exceeded $100,000. This level of giving was crucial to the construction of our new building in downtown San Diego in 2008. The continued generosity of these donors enables the Museum to offer new experiences in creativity and secure many of the marquee education programs and installations in place today.
