Give Today!

“Don’t think about fun as a reward, think of it as a responsibility, “ Sir Richard Branson

You’re responsible for opening OH WOW!’s doors for many in our community!

Together we have provided hundreds of memberships to families who might not otherwise be able to afford one, rewarded thousands of young readers with free passes for taking part in summer reading programs, funded scholarships to our Summer Manufacturing Institutes, produced free weekly programming at OH WOW!, enriched the lives of hundreds of students at our afterschool programs and provided financial assistance to every school and group who booked a fieldtrip.

Thanks to you every child who came for a fieldtrip received a free pass to come back with their family. We love seeing those kids burst through our front doors with pass in hand, excited to show their loved ones everything they’ve learned.

With your help we can continue to offer a safe place where kids explore and experience the fun of learning and where families reconnect and play together. This holiday season help us live up to this critical responsibility.
