Stepping Stones is a 501(c)3 non-proﬁt children’s museum. More than 50% of the museum’s revenue comes from corporate sponsorships, foundation and government grants and individual giving. We rely on donors like you to keep our mission going.
At the heart of Stepping Stones is a dedicated commitment for all children and families to access museum offerings known as Open Arms. Open Arms serves more than 50,000 guests each year, supporting multicultural and multilingual interests, free or reduced fees and other important needs. More than 1.3 million individuals have participated in this outstanding program since the museum opened in March 2000.
We need your support.
