Your generosity is building a place for children to create, learn, and play.


Your contribution will help improve the lives of children in the Eastern Upper Peninsula and Algoma, Ontario regions by providing a fun and interactive learning environment in our local community. Donations are tax-deductible*!

Let's Get this Demo Done!
Campaign Progress: Completed

We did it! 
Thanks to the generous support of our community, and a grant through the Michigan Arts and Culture Council, the demolition of the interior of our space on Portage has been completed! 

On to the next step:
 

Whitebox Construction

The next step in our project is to raise the funds for the whitebox construction phase.  This includes architect's drawings that will guide the interior finishing of the space so that we can open and begin serving our community.  Help us reach this exciting goal today!


Donor Levels

The feasibility study, establishing 501(c)(3) status, and the museum design sketches by Bluewater Studio were all projects completed using previous generous donations.

Are you interested in making a larger donation personally or on behalf of your company or organization?

If so, please contact our Board president, Dr. Raquel Fernandez-Earns at raquele@slcmkids.org.
