We’ve had a busy and exciting year at Knock Knock, full of educational programming, special events, and PLAY! As we wrap up the year we’re celebrating seeing our mission in action, and the impact it has had on our community in the past year – all thanks to supporters like YOU!
The impulse to play is innate; in fact, our bodies require it for healthy development. That’s why it is at the root of everything we do at the Knock Knock Children’s Museum. Every inch of our museum was specially designed to maximize opportunities for children to learn and explore through play.
Everything we do is made possible by our community of donors, volunteers, and members. Without your support, we would not be able to open doors to unique and impactful learning experiences and create magical memories for the children in the Capital Region. To all of our supporters, thank you for all you make possible!
Did you know that as a 501c3 nonprofit, Knock Knock raises 50% of our annual operating budget through earned revenue such as tickets, memberships, birthdays, field trips, programs, rentals, events, and investments? Less than 11% of our annual budget comes from public or government funding, which is discretionary from year to year. Each year, approximately 39% comes from foundation grants, private and corporate sponsorships, and philanthropic donations from supporters like you.
Thank you for your consideration to include the Knock Knock Children’s Museum in your end-of-year giving! Your generosity will continue to open doors to expand our ability to touch young lives and inspire them to love learning.
