Help us build the Wonderground!

Fundraising to complete the Wonderground—and to sustain MCM through the last year and beyond—is right on track. The campaign recently passed the $4 million mark, and we hope to raise $5 million by the time the Wonderground opens in October.

Now we need your help to raise the last funds to open the exhibit and bring the healing power of play to our whole community.

Triple match

Thanks to the generosity of an anonymous donor, every dollar you give to support opening the Wonderground will be matched times three, up to $250,000! So if you give $5, the museum gets $20; if you give $100, the museum gets $400. This includes gifts given for the ribbon and wall of support campaigns, below.

Make your mark on the Wonderground

For any gift of $1 or more in the museum, get a ribbon from the front desk and decorate it with your name or a design. Your ribbon will be included in a special display when the Wonderground opens in October. 

Join our wall of support

Give a gift of $1,000 or more and add your name or the name of a loved one to our wall of supporters, which will be permanently posted in the Wonderground. 

For example:
  • Omar & Angela Doe
  • In honor of Brendan, Kyle, & Lindsey
  • In memory of Lucille Smith
All gifts for the wall of support must be received by September 14.

Thanks to the generosity of many, we were able to start the construction process for the Wonderground in January. Watch a time-lapse recording of the process from January–June 2021.
