PLAY IT FORWARD HOMEPAGE & EVENT 

Provide Children with Access to Purposeful Play!

Let's make sure every kid has the opportunity to play, learn, and dream. Play is more essential than ever - it's how children learn, how they build connections, and how they engage with the world around them. But with schools closed, extracurriculars canceled, and a safe place to play closed, play is harder than ever. Let's change that. Make a donation or purchase a raffle ticket today and help us bring play to more children. Your support will fund PlayPacks filled with hands-on, educational toys that children can enjoy at home. It will fund interactive programming delivered in the Museum, in communities, and via virtual platforms. And, it will bring more children to play - and play to more children. 

Play It Forward donations are used to support the annual operating budget of the museum. They are essential to our future! Below are examples of how you can make play possible for more of Maryland's children.
