What is Give Local?  

It's an annual giving tradition! Hosted by Connecticut Community Foundation and sponsored by Ion Bank Foundation for the sixth consecutive year, Give Local Greater Waterbury and Litchfield Hills will be held on April 24-25 to benefit the vital work of hundreds of nonprofit organizations in the region including KidsPlay!

Every dollar donated will be boosted with bonus funds provided by Connecticut Community Foundation and generous sponsors, adding excitement and incentives while raising essential funds for the work of hundreds of  nonprofits in Greater Waterbury and the Litchfield Hills.

How will funds raised during Give Local benefit KidsPlay?

Your donation through Give Local will provide children and caretakers access to interactive, hands-on exhibits and supportive educational programming. You will support our vision as a sustainable anchor institution that prepares our diverse community of children to thrive intellectually, socially, and emotionally. Every dollar raised brings us closer to our goal of offering more children a broader spectrum of opportunities to engage in self-directed, creative learning that is crucial for lifelong success.

About KidsPlay

KidsPlay Children’s Museum inspires children ages 1 to 10 to build curiosity and explore through developmental play. The Museum offers over 11,000 sf of interactive, hands-on exhibits and a variety of educational programs. KidsPlay is the only museum in Northwest Connecticut specifically dedicated to child-directed learning. The Museum welcomes a diverse cultural, educational, and social-economic community. KidsPlay provides children and caretakers with an intrinsically memorable, whole family learning experience which builds skills they can extend beyond the museum.
