Change a child’s life today
Today, science confirms what has been the central tenet of Please Touch Museum’s mission since its founding 40 years ago: play supports brain development. Through play, children learn about and interact with their world and gain the mental, physical, and social skills necessary to succeed in their adult lives. Your gift to the Annual Fund helps to support museum programs and experiences, and ensures that millions of children continue to benefit from an organization that has been a leader in its field for four decades.
Introducing the CAPP fund
Communities At Purposeful Play (CAPP) is Please Touch Museum’s Access Program offering free or deeply discounted admission to over 65,000 low-income children, families, and school-children each year. Twenty-eight percent (28%) of Philadelphians, and more than one in three of the city’s children, live in poverty. Central to Please Touch Museum’s mission is a special investment in the children of Philadelphia and particularly the Parkside community where Memorial Hall is located and where 46% of children live below the poverty line. Your gift to the CAPP Fund helps to support this mission driven program.
A tribute gift is the perfect way to honor a loved one.
