Target Your Giving

Do you prefer to target your giving toward an area that you are passionate about? Explore Kaleideum’s three initiatives that help our community’s children learn and grow: Access & Opportunity, Engineering & Innovation; and Literacy & Expression.

Access & Opportunity Fund

Kaleideum is committed to creating and sustaining a diverse, equitable, accessible, and inclusive learning ecosystem.  Your gift to the Access & Opportunity Fund ensures that everyone in our community can access all that Kaleideum has to offer

This includes free programming for Title I schools, the Museums for All initiative which offers discounted admission for EBT (Electronic Benefit Transfer) cardholders, military and educator discounts, library community passes, and more.  

Engineering & Innovation Fund

Kaleideum fosters a culture of belonging where all people feel encouraged to contribute and participate. Your gift to the Engineering & Innovation Fund supports Prism, a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) initiative that seeks to build a pipeline of future innovators in our community and engage individuals typically underrepresented in STEAM

Prism programs include STEAM-oriented camps, an annual Engineering Festival, Invention Convention, after-school and weekend STEAM workshops, FIRST robotics, and Girls Who Code. 

Literacy & Expression Fund

Kaleideum believes there is value in listening to someone else’s story — and courage in telling your own. Your gift to the Literacy & Expression Fund helps build the foundations of learning and communication. Literacy & Expression experiences include weekly story times, staff- and community-led theatre productions, collaborative art projects, and other creative endeavors
