One hundred percent of our exhibits, daily programming, special events are thanks to our donors. We rely on generous individuals, companies, and grant foundations to create the one-of-a-kind educational experiences that our visitors love. The gift you give today will positively impact a child for a lifetime.

There are many ways to help spark a lifelong love of learning. See below for all the great ways you can contribute to Sacramento Children’s Museum!

Donate Today

We accept cash, checks, and major credit cards. We also welcome all gifts of stock, real estate, planned giving and in-kind donations. Payment can be made as a one-time gift, or you can really keep a love of learning alive with monthly, quarterly, or annual installments.

Help us inspire children for years to come with a monthly, quarterly, or annual pledge. Please contact our Executive Director for more information.

Invite Your Office to Help

You can designate SCM for your company’s annual employee giving program, or you can make your gift go twice as far with an employer matching gift. Please ask your place of employment if they offer these programs, or contact us to assist you.

Museum Access Program (MAP)

Sponsorship of this program will ensure that the Museum’s exhibits and programs are accessible to low-income, at-risk, and special needs children and their families. Sponsorship opportunities range from subsidizing single-visit Museums for All passes for low-income families, to underwriting a Free Admission Day, to sponsoring field trips for an entire school district in an under-served community. If you are interested in donating or learning more, please contact our Executive Director, Sharon Stone Smith.

Matching Gifts

Your employer may have a matching gift program. If so, you can make your gift go twice as far! Please inquire at your place of employment or contact us to assist you.
