ALL Nor-Cal Children need the same access to Chico Children's Museum! Help us build access for ALL with a donation in the amount of a membership of your choosing. (Choose a SPECIFIC family to sponsor by purchasing a membership on our membership page, and entering your chosen family’s information.)


**For 2018-2019 “Fund A Family” is a program designed to help us afford unlimited free-play for displaced children and families from the CAMP FIRE CRISIS. No application required, museum staff will verify eligibility. CCM will be applying for grants to continue funding access for affected families as soon as the national relief funding moves into phase 2 (which offers financial support for emotional needs). For privacy purposes, no family names will be published by the museum but all gifted memberships will be listed to North Valley Community Foundation.

We will also be announcing FREE pop up days for affected children and families ASAP
