 Annual Appeal 2018:

The Children’s Museum has been a vital part of our community for over 20 years.  Families come here to learn, play and have fun together.  Extended families meet here and create lasting memories.  Travelers stop for a break and leave rested with knowledge gained.  We are now seeing young parents, who came here as children, bringing their own children to experience what they once enjoyed so much.


Together with our new Executive Director, Joanna Engle, we have identified four goals we believe will enhance the way we serve the community.  

  • Develop exhibits that appeal to a wider age range
  • Create exhibits with a STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) focus
  • Incorporate elements that encourage working collaboratively and build problem solving skills
  • Grow our reputation as a destination for families traveling through Pendleton

We are inspired by:

We believe that by raising $10,000 we can make these goals a reality.  Please join us in turning inspiration into action by making a donation today.  

With your generous support we can continue to build the foundation of education, set the stage for lifelong learning and put our future leaders on the right path!  


Thank you,
