Support Colorado's future explorers, innovators and leaders.


The Children’s Museum of Denver at Marsico Campus creates extraordinary experiences that champion the wonder and joy of childhood. We believe in kid-powered learning and work every day to open doors for Colorado's curious young minds. 

In order to ensure all children, regardless of financial circumstances, have the opportunity to visit the Museum, we are actively raising funds for our access programs, which include the following:

  • Sponsored Admissions and Memberships Program: Provides educational programming through both outreach and field trips, and annual family memberships to students in underserved childcare centers and elementary schools throughout the metro area. This program serves nearly 20,000 students annually.
  • SNAP Access Initiative: Offers alternative admissions pricing for families participating in the federal Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). Last year, we served nearly 25,000 individuals through this initiative.

Sturm Family Foundation, recognizing the remarkable impact of the Museum’s crucial access programs, has committed to match dollar for dollar, up to $100,000, all cash gifts of $100 or more made to the Sponsored Admissions Program or SNAP Access Initiative on or before September 19, 2018. With this exciting opportunity, the impact of your gift will be even greater.

Donations to our access programs support an immediate need and are essential to our ability to continue these efforts.
