As a non-profit, the Museum covers operating costs using a combination of donations, grants, fund-raising proceeds, admission fees, membership fees and program fees. Detailed financial information is available on our website here.
The Great Lakes Children’s Museum publicly acknowledges donors on this website page, through our recognition display inside the Museum, and on occasion with articles or through our Facebook page. Donors wishing to remain anonymous can opt out. We recognize their contributions with an aggregated “Anonymous” entry in that case. Recognition “resets” with the end of our fiscal year (June 30).
