2024 Annual Fund Campaign

The Best Step to the Biggest Adventure

Stepping Stones Museum for Children is an award-winning, nonprofit children’s museum that works every day to provide essential educational offerings for children ages 10 and under. The museum generates half of its annual revenue from individual donations, grants, sponsorships and special events.

The museum depends largely on generous donors like to you to fund its STEAM-based programming, hands-on exhibits and early language and literacy opportunities for children.
