As a donor to the Bayou Country Children’s Museum, you help children realize their full potential in an environment that educates exploration, discovery, and active engagement alongside caring adults. Your support forms the basis for the BCCM to serve over 40,000 children and caregivers each year.
Corporate leadership is a vital part of supporting the Bayou Country Children’s Museum’s mission of inspiring curiosity and encouraging learning for children and their families through discovery and play with an emphasis of our Cajun culture. Through exhibit and programming sponsorship, as well as support of community outreach and events, a corporate gift to the BCCM is an investment in the bayou region’s future.
As with most children’s museums, admissions alone do not cover operating expenses. We have come up with two unique and fun fundraisers for the community: one for children and families, and the other for adults! In the Fall, we host our annual Night at the BOOseum, and in the Spring is our Play it Forward Casino Night and Auction for the adults. While these are two very different events, they are both centered on the same cause – to help with the sustainability of the Bayou Country Children’s Museum!
