Ways to Support Your Children’s Museum


For nearly 40 years, Discovery Gateway children’s museum has been educating and inspiring generation after generation of local children, first as The Children’s Museum of Utah, and now at our present location at The Gateway in downtown Salt Lake City.

Help us continue to create family memories, cultivate creative expression, spark scientific curiosity, and encourage kids of all ages to imagine, discover, and connect with their world to make a difference. There are several ways for individuals to contribute to the Museum and its mission.

Help Our Museum Thrive! Donate Now.
By making a donation, you are making a committment to kids by supporting early childhood education. All proceeds go directly to Discovery Gateway programs.

BEElieve in Children & Giving Tree
Help provide annual museum memberships to local organizations through Discovery Gateway’s sponsored admissions program. Your end of year tax-deductible gift will ensure that children and their families receiving assistance from these providers have the opportunity to visit the museum at no-cost throughout the year, providing a safe haven for kids and families who are experiencing hardships in their lives. Individuals can purchase a paper ornament on site or online for any amount at the Admissions Desk to hang on the Giving Tree at certain times throughout the year.
