The State Journal-Register is reporting, “As the Kidzeum of Health and Science gets closer to its opening day, organizers of the downtown venue are continuing their fundraising efforts.
Rachael Thomson, president of the Kidzeum board, said the museum still has about $300,000 in capital expenses that the board is trying to cover through fundraising. One way to get that number down is for people or businesses to donate everyday items that the museum will need when it opens.
“Everybody has told me the last bit of fundraising is really challenging, and it has been,” Thomson said. “If we can get all of our in-kind needs, which are storage, office supplies, general tools for our maintenance facility, we could really bring that number down.”…”
