What Am I Supporting?

The Children’s Museum is a registered non-profit children’s charity (#10348 0943 RR0001) that relies on earned revenue, including donations received through our fundraising events, to cover approximately 90% of our operating costs. As such, your support of the Children’s Museum’s Family Night Out Series is extremely meaningful. Proceeds generated by this fundraising event will enable the museum to enhance exhibits, create educational programs, and help fund our Access Programs – including the Free2Play Access Program, the Rural Access Program, and the Explore-Abilities Access Program – which help to provide free museum visits and programming to under-supported children in Manitoba.
