ICM for Everyone

The Iowa Children's Museum is dedicated to providing quality informal learning opportunities to all children regardless of their ability, economic status, cultural heritage, or family structure. The ICM for Everyone Program provides ICM Memberships for economically disadvantaged families through the generous donations of individuals, foundations, and corporations.

For every $100 donated, a qualifying family or children's organization (such as MECCA Transitional Housing, DVIP, or the Neighborhood Centers of Johnson County) will receive one year of unlimited access to the museum's exhibits and programs. Your donation is tax deductible.

Donating to The ICM for Everyone program is the perfect way to:

  • Honor an employee
  • Teach a child about giving
  • Recognize a loved one
  • Show your support of The ICM

Please give what you can to support The ICM for Everyone Program and help other families take advantage of playing to learn at The Iowa Children's Museum.

Want to donate?
