Give to the Museum Day!

June 23, 2017

Give to the Museum Day is a special day set aside for members and friends to make online donations to the Swedish American Museum. This year, we are focused on raising money for our Brunk Children’s Museum of Immigration, where we help children imagine what it would be like to leave home and settle in a new place. We want to stimulate those childhood imaginations in a new way by adding new technology to engage children in middle grades.

Your gift can help us with developing an iPad game that will allow young visitors to explore immigration stories by packing a trunk for their voyage, landing at Ellis Island, and building a homestead in their new country. Our goal on June 23 is to raise $5,000 to hire an application developer who can make this game a reality for our visitors.

Your donation today will help us “step up our game” at the Children’s Museum. Many thanks for your generosity!

We are off to a great start! At 9:45 a.m. we reached $2,900.
