Welcome Fund

Omaha Children’s Museum’s Welcome Fund is a program designed to provide children and families who could not otherwise afford it, access to the museum. Through the contributions of caring community members, the museum is able to offer discounted memberships to Omaha’s underserved learners.

This program is open to the public, with recruitment conducted through marketing to visitors and targeted outreach efforts aimed at underserved populations. Omaha Children’s Museum collaborates with school administrations with Title One income designation. Our program is designed to identify, invite and include these new members in a discreet, dignified, and non-evaluative manner. Administration procedures are designed to secure the anonymity of subsidized members among our membership-at-large.

Memorials and Tributes

Your gift to Omaha Children’s Museum can be made in memory of a loved one, in recognition of a child or a favorite teacher – it’s a wonderful way to honor someone who made a difference in your life.
