Give the gift of Inspiration! Help children and adults get inspired by art, history and science at Springfield Museums. Your gift of any amount on December 12 helps us bring visitors to the furthest reaches of the universe and their imagination.

Springfield Museums is one of the hundreds of nonprofits participating in the second annual Valley Gives Day scheduled for December 12, 2013. Valley Gives is an innovative online fundraising event that encourages individuals to donate as much money as possible in support of their favorite charities in just twenty-four hours.

Throughout the day, donors will be randomly chosen and your gift may be amplified with a Golden Ticket adding $1,200 in support of our organization (more than 80 different nonprofits will receive this bonus). At the end of 24 hours, the nonprofits that have raised the most money, and those that have the most unique donors, will be rewarded with special grants from a prize pool of $200,000.

Guests to the Museums learn about the wonders of our community, our heritage and our world as they explore the Quadrangle. Art courses, field trips, outreach and family programs as well as cultural events enable the Museums to serve as a resource for the community.  As school budgets are reduced, the Museums is stepping up its programming to reach out to even more of our youth.

To maximize our organization’s success on Valley Gives Day, we need you to help us with these four things:

  1. Mark 12.12.13 on your calendar and bookmark our Valley Gives page.
