In-Kind Donations

The Children’s Museum welcomes the donation of in-kind materials to help with our day-to-day operations, as well as special events. We also accept in-kind donations of time and talent, such as a musician hosting a special concert with us or an artist teaching a workshop free-of-charge. We do not accept in-kind gifts without a prior appointment, however, and must connect with you prior to your making an in-kind gift.

Art Supplies Needed

We’re always collecting the following recycled materials for the Art Room (please clean all items donated):

  • Cardboard Tubes
  • Cardstock
  • Corks
  • CDs & DVDs
  • Egg Cartons
  • Lids and Caps
  • Magazines
  • Paper Bags
  • Plastic Cups (washed well)
  • Plastic Yogurt Cups (washed well)
  • Playing Cards
  • Puzzle Pieces
  • Ribbon, String, Yarn
  • Shoeboxes
  • Small Gift Boxes
  • Unused Paper

*One thing in great abundance helps tremendously*

(Please no glass, metal, peanut/nut or medicine containers. Please no sharp objects.)

Current Needs

Currently, we are looking for:

  • Laptop and desktop computers (running Windows 7 or higher / OS 8 or higher)
  • iPads (second generation and above; iPad minis of all generations)
  • Rolling carts for transporting items
  • Medium fireproof safe
  • “Big Book”-sized picture books
  • Trailer for pulling large items to outreach events

By law, non-profit organizations cannot provide a donor with the dollar value of an in-kind gift. The value of an in-kind, relative to “fair market value”, needs to be professionally assessed and certified elsewhere – if they can be – and that is the responsibility of the donor.

Thank you for your support!
