Why we need your support

Prior to COVID-19, 60% of GRCM’s income came from earned revenue (admissions, memberships and events). Those revenue streams came to a screeching halt on March 13, 2020. Never did we imagine when we closed our doors in March that we would remain closed for 8 months and counting. But while our doors have been closed, our team has been busy ensuring that our community keeps playing through programs such as our Play@Home resources and Kids Can! Van mobile museum. Your gift today helps ensure that the museum is able to continue these programs and reopen safely in 2021, with plans to be brighter and better than ever.

Your donation to GRCM will make a difference with:

Sanitizing stations

New & refurbished exhibits 

Multicultural books for our reimagined reading nook

Family friendly bilingual signage with imagery displaying safety reminders 

New seating throughout the museum

Brighten up the museum with a fresh coat of paint in sensory-friendly colors

More immersive play experiences in 2021!
