Boston Children’s Museum is grateful to its generous supporters and members who annually contribute to the Museum’s fundraising events and Annual Fund. In light of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Museum launched its Helping Hands Campaign to raise unrestricted funding to help offset the significant admission and event-generated revenue lost during the Museum’s public closure. Hundreds of donations, large and small, were contributed by Museum members, donors, corporations, and foundations to help the Museum weather this challenging year, and we are incredibly grateful to this outpouring of generous support.
Contributions to the Helping Hands Campaign make all the difference. You can make a contribution here.
In November, the Museum hosted its sixth annual The Wonder Ball gala. Over 400 guests attended the Museum’s signature fundraising event and helped raise nearly $600,000 to support the Museum’s access programs, so that all children and families can enjoy joyful discovery experiences and the power of play. The Museum was transformed to a dreamlike landscape for the evening and under a canopy of stars and clouds, guests enjoyed a lively cocktail hour, sit-down dinner, dancing, and silent auction.
At Boston Children’s Museum, fundraising events are not just for the grown-ups! Our fourth annual Silly Soirée was a Leap Day celebration hosted on February 29, 2020. Our largest Soirée yet, the event was sold out and over 400 children, parents and caregivers danced the night away with special superhero guests, Museum partner Heroes for Hire. This event, which is planned by a Kids’ Committee and is an introduction to philanthropy for the children attending, helps raise key funding for the Museum’s access programs. The Museum is very grateful to all attendees and event sponsors, including Presenting Sponsor, The TJX Foundation, Inc.
