Give the Gift of Play

The Gift of Play!
During this season of giving, please help Providence Children's Museum give the gift of inspiring, joy-filled play and learning to children and families who need it most.

Why do we need YOUR help? Did you know that each year ...
  • 40 percent of the Museum's operating budget goes toward serving children and families in need.
  • 36 percent of visitors come free, including 1,250 Head Start children and caregivers offered free year-long admission passes.
  • 500 kids from inner-city community centers participate in engaging out-of-school time activities, facilitated by the Museum's AmeriCorps members.
  • 170 court-separated families come together for therapeutic visits with the Museum's team of family therapists.
Your donation of any amount helps us continue to provide these important services to children and families who truly need them.

And if you're not able to make a financial contribution, we're also collecting toys for the children served by Families Together
the Museum's visitation program for court-separated families. Look for the collection box in our Gift Shop.

In whatever way you can, please play a part!

Thank you for your support, and we wish you a joyful, playFULL holiday season!
