Operation Support

The cost of providing quality hands-on learning through our interactive exhibits and educational programming exceeds well beyond our admission fees. Support from our community helps us stay on top of the day-to-expenses, so that we can focus on our our mission to provide exceptional play and learning year-round for area children and families in a safe and fun environment!

Make your donation count! Above the line deductions for 2021:

Individuals who take the standard deduction on their taxes (do not itemize) in 2021 can claim an "above-the-line deduction" for cash donations to qualifying charitable organizations (including CMDZ), up to $300 (or $600 for those filing married/jointly). Check with your accountant for more information.


Capital Campaign Support

Thanks to the generous support of our donors and friends, CMDZ's new 6,400 square foot museum was recently purchased, renovated, and filled with one-of-a-kind exhibits, allowing us to make our BIG MOVE and open our doors again in the fall of 2020. However, our job is not complete. We have more in store for our new property to continue growing it to its grand potential.

The next phase of our capital campaign focuses on the renovation of our outdoor space, transforming it into an outside adventure full of exploration, movement, discovery, and fresh air! To learn more about this project, please contact our Fund Development Coordinator by email at kayan@cmdzparsons.com.

Sponsorships

Curious Minds offers a variety of educational programming and special events year-round that provide children opportunities to explore the world around them using hands-on concepts of science, technology, engineering, art, and math. With weekly programs geared towards crawlers up to junior high, we have something for everyone! Individual and corporate sponsorships of these events help us fulfill our mission to provide one-of-a-kind educational experiences while engaging as many area families and children as possible!

Sponsors can impact the museum in a variety of ways.
