Provide Children with Access to Purposeful Play!
Every child should have access to purposeful play. However, playing is sometimes harder than it sounds – poverty, neighborhood violence, and the demands of busy lifestyles sometimes mean children truly don’t have access to play. Help change that. In 2018, we provided free and reduced admission to more than 69,000 children and families. Support Port Discovery’s Play it Forward 2019 and give even more children access to hands-on play, imaginative learning, and educational programs for children and families that often face financial, emotional or circumstantial challenges.
Your support of Play it Forward allows the Museum to:
- Provide free and reduced admission visits for children in Title I schools, where many children face financial, emotional or circumstantial challenges. Help at-risk families improve literacy and parenting skills
- Honor U.S. military personnel with free and reduced admissions
- Provide Museum on the Road community outreach programs in schools, Judy Centers, Head Start Centers, and more.
- Offer educational exhibits and events linked to learning outcomes.
