Individual Donations

The Children’s Museum of Cleveland provides exhibits and programs that are the cornerstone for unique, hands-on learning opportunities. The presentation of these exhibits and their related programs is supported by our Annual Fund. Without gifts from thoughtful individuals we could not continue to provide stimulating experiences for the children of Northeast Ohio. Your thoughtful contribution to our Annual Fund enables the children of Greater Cleveland to discover the world through play.

Please consider making a donation to The Children’s Museum of Cleveland.
