Community Fundraising Support

For the the past two years, we’ve given away free passes valued at more than $2,400  to worthy organizations in our community and beyond. The table below shows donated passes to a wide range of organizations and causes.

Any school, church, or nonprofit organization may request  four free guest passes for a charity auction or fundraiser. Please call the Museum to make your request or use our contact form under About Us\Contact Us.

Organizations directly serving at-risk or underserved children and families may request a larger volume of passes for their clients under our +PLUS Program. PLUS passes are made available as funds allow.
