Community Fundraisers


Nhgives Cover18

The Children’s Museum of New Hampshire will again participate in the annual NH Gives program, an initiative of the NH Center of Nonprofits, with a goal of raising $2,000 within a 24-hour period!

NH Gives is designed to bring the state together as one community, raising as much money and awareness as possible for New Hampshire’s nonprofits within a 24-hour flood of donations. Last year we smashed our goal of raising $1,000 with the help of over 25 donors! This year, we think we can do even better with your help!

The day starts at 6pm on June 6th and ends at 6pm on June 7th. 


What does this money go to support? 

The donations we receive through NH Gives go to support the families who might struggle to pay our admission fees. Over 30% of our families are only able to visit because of our ‘Museum Access for All’ programs.” A few examples of that program include subsidized bus visits for Title 1 Schools, families paying only $1 per person when they present an EBT Card, and even free programs for families with children on the autism spectrum.  

Tips, Tricks & Prizes!

The NH Center for Nonprofits makes this day a lot of fun, and they have included some great prizes for the non-profits. In addition to some random cash giveaways throughout the 24-hour period, they also give away prizes for things like the non-profit that raises the most money between 9pm and 10am, or the first non-profit to receive the first online donation of the day! You can learn more about these prizes here and be a little strategic about your donation time!


Share your Story!

Throughout the day we'll be sharing quotes and stories about people who have visited the museum and been positively impacted by the work we do here. We encourage you to share your stories as well! Be sure to use the hashtag #NHGives.


We know there are a lot of wonderful non-profits in this state that do a lot of good, so thank you for taking the time to support your favorites!

BONUS! If we reach our goal...

We wanted to give you a little incentive to give during this 24-hour period so we have arranged to have CMNH President, Jane Bard, lead a parade of staff through the Dover Adventure Playground splash pad IF, and ONLY if, we raise $2,000!
