As Fred Rogers, the iconic television personality who invited children and parents into his “neighborhood” on a daily basis, said so eloquently, “Play is some of children’s most important work. When we treat children’s play as seriously as it deserves, we are helping them feel the joy that’s to be found in the creative spirit. We’re helping ourselves stay in touch with that spirit, too.”
Play is every child’s most important job. It is how they learn to work with other people and to engage their sense of creativity. Together, with the support of friends like you, we can contribute to building a stronger community by providing opportunities to children to experience the power of play, and in turn, discover something new about themselves and the world in which they live. Here are just a few of the powerful ways that your gift can make a positive difference in the lives of our community’s children and families:
• You provide a valuable resource for Lincoln’s families, where a life-long love of learning can be fostered and nurtured.
• You contribute to strengthening the emotional bonds between children and their parents, grandparents and caregivers.
• You ensure that we are able to keep admission and membership rates as low as possible...
• You make sure that families in financial need are able to experience the Museum for only $15 a year through the Have a Heart program.
When you support the Museum, you help children develop a life-long love of learning and prepare them for a successful future! Your gift to Lincoln Children's Museum will help preserve the joy of childhood!For more information about how you can support the power of play, please contact Marissa Gill Keyzer, Director of Development at 402-477-4000, ext. 103.
