Foundational support

The New Children’s Museum is grateful for our Foundational 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 exhibitions in place today.
