Thousands of children enjoy the Museum with their families and friends.  But, we can’t do this without you. When you make a donation to the Museum, you are supporting childhood development and family engagement!

Proceeds from the Make It Happen Appeal will ensure that the Museum can continue to:

  • Offer curriculum-enriching field trips for students
  • Engage participants in quality family learning programs
  • Provide funding for our Every Child, Every Family program for children who otherwise could not afford to visit
  • Purchase circuits, tools, & motors for new Maker League programs targeting 700 participants per year


Contributions can also be made by sending a check to CMFDL (75 W. Scott Street, Fond du Lac, WI 54935), or by calling 920-929-0707.

Be one of 100 Movers & Shakers to donate $1,000 and help us raise $100,000!
