The #MakingAMuseumKC fundraising initiative is a collaborate project that seeks public and private funding support. Currently, we are seeking funding for the development, fabrication, and installation of the exhibitions and interactive digital technologies for Corinthian Hall, as well as special naming opportunities to complete Stage I of the project.

We have officially launched an individual donor phase of the fundraising initiative called #MakingAMuseumKC|100. This offers a way for individual donors to give $100 or more to support the museum project and be recognized as a part of this historic restoration and renovation.

“I grew up in the Kansas City area, and remember going to this Museum for grade school events. It feels good to give back to a place that has helped shape many wonderful memories for me, and I’m looking forward to creating more memories that I had a part in making happen.”
