Glazer Children's Museum Website Home

You can help us continue to give a quality, educational, and playful experience to all children in a number of ways. From a monthly donation to investing in a program or exhibit, or even hosting a fundraiser of your own, you can keep the play going at GCM!

WHY WE NEED YOU NOW MORE THAN EVER

While admission and special program revenue support 60% of Glazer Children’s Museum’s operations, the remaining 40% must be made up through generous individuals, corporations, and foundations committed to investing in our award-winning children’s museum in Tampa Bay. These private donations allow us to continue giving a quality, educational and playful experience for all children. You make it all possible! 

DID YOU KNOW

  • Right now, 1 in every 3 American museums faces a significant risk of closing permanently because of financial duress due to the COVID-19 pandemic 
  • Our ticket prices cover only a little over half of what it takes to provide our programs and play opportunities 
  • Private donations help us continue our commitment to providing inclusive and accessible programs to children and families of all backgrounds with programs like our Sunshine Sunday sensory-friendly day, field trip scholarships to Title 1 Schools, camp scholarships for Camp Imagination, and more. 
  • Your contribution helps us work with educators and the school districts to provide high-quality field trips, scholarships, and programming to Title 1 Schools with children whose families are experiencing financial hardship. 

Corporate Giving

Align your brand with GCM to show families throughout Tampa Bay you value learning through play by sponsoring a program, exhibit, or event.

Your Impact

We gathered three families and one Teen Play Leader to share how Glazer Children’s Museum has provided playful learning opportunities for them.

Because of corporations and people like you, Brody is able to play with purpose in a comfortable sensory-friendly camp environment, Rowan and Bennett can have a sensory-friendly play experience, Danielle is able to attend Camp Imagination and explore the possibilities of her future, and Anji is able to spark the imagination of a child in our Teen Play Leader Program.
