Program Sponsorships

Family Museum Access Assistance Program - $2,500

The purpose of the Access Assistance program is to reach diverse populations in the Quad Cities and make the Family Museum and our programming accessible to all by providing affordable annual Household memberships to qualifying families. Awards are made based upon the income guidelines set by the Federal Free and Reduced Lunch program and provide a 90% subsidy toward membership fees.

Access Assistance Memberships afford the bearer the same benefits as any other Family Museum Membership. These benefits, such as reciprocity at all Association of Science and Technology Center (ASTC) participating museums, invitations to exclusive "member only" events and discounts on birthday parties & in our gift shop ensure our Access Families feel welcome and valued in our facility and at Museums across the country.

Family Museum on the Go (Summer 2020) - $2,500

Each Friday during the summer, Family Museum Staff jump in the Family Museum and take the "Museum on the Go" to neighborhood parks in Bettendorf and Davenport. They hang out at the park from 10 a.m. to noon bringing fun, free activities to the neighborhoods and children. From Stomp Rockets to Bubbles, neighborhood kids can enjoy some outdoor fun in the sun.

The purpose of Museum on the Go is to reach audiences that otherwise might not be able to come to the Museum due to financial restrictions or transportation boundaries. Weekly attendance ranges from 75 to 100 children.

First Place for First Grade - $3,000

Through this program, supported by local businesses and organizations, any first grade class in Scott and Rock Island County can visit the family museum for at no charge! The Family Museum even plays for bus fees. For many children this is the first and only time they might visit the Family Museum.

Last year, 2,207 first grade students visited the Family Museum as a result of this program.

This program is charitably funded and spots are available on a first come first serve basis. Increased funding would allow is to provide this field trip for more first grade classes in our community.
