Ways to Give

Powered by Play: Powered by You

True to our history of thinking big, The Strong’s expansion will do more than add space. It will create experiences that showcase the power of play in our lives, in the vitality of an entire city, and in human development worldwide.

Your gift to the Powered by Play campaign is an investment in the future of our community and the future of play as a force that brings us all together.

Join us in creating a better future, a future powered by play. Whether you make a gift to the overall comprehensive campaign or designate a gift to construction or a specific campaign priority, you can have an impact in many ways:

Capital Gifts

Both individuals and organizations can support the development and construction of the expansion projects. Capital gifts directly support the building of the parking garage, the 100,000-sqaure-foot museum expansion, and necessary renovations to the existing museum building.

Naming Opportunities

Naming opportunities create a direct connection between your investment in The Strong and the museum’s impact while recognizing or honoring an individual or organization. The Strong offers naming opportunities related to spaces and areas, such as classrooms or galleries. Donors can also name programmatic initiatives, such as staff leadership positions, community outreach programs, or collections and conservation funds. Download PDF of Naming Opportunities.

Sponsorships and Partnerships

Through sponsorships and partnerships, businesses and other organizations provide critical funding for targeted programs and exhibits. Sponsor organizations receive employee benefits and visibility amongst broad onsite and online audiences.

Unrestricted Multi-Year Commitments

Unrestricted multi-year commitments allow The Strong to make immediate investments in programs, assets, and ideas. Through a multi-year commitment, donors enable the museum to plan and budget for future initiatives.

Planned Giving

Estate and planned gifts secure your legacy and the future of the museum. Donors who commit to a planned gift become members of The Strong’s Woodbury Society. Learn more about planned giving at The Strong.
