One Person Makes All the Difference at CMEC

Individual Giving & Donations

People often think they can’t make a difference as just one person, but the Children’s Museum of Eau Claire started with the dream of just one little three-year-old girl. Without the support of individuals in the Chippewa Valley—people just like you—the Children’s Museum of Eau Claire wouldn’t be able to continue helping tens of thousands of children play, learn and grow!

How can you help?

By donating to our Play-For-All program.

At the Museum, we believe ALL children and their parents deserve the opportunity to learn through play together, regardless of their circumstances or socio-economic status. Through generous donations to our Play-for-All program, we can provide families in need a reduced membership of just $10 a year.

Here’s what your donation to the Play-for-All program supports:

  • Family Free Play Nights: a partnership with local school districts to provide free access to families in their free and reduced lunch programs.
  • Passport to Play: provides mini-grants to schools and community organizations for field trips.
  • Special Kids Night: provides evenings of museum adventure for kids with special needs and their families.
  • All Play Family Memberships:provides reduced-price memberships for low-income families in addition to children with special needs, military, and foster care families.

We welcome any donation, big or small! For gifts of $100 or more, you become part of our giving circles:
