Building the Future Together

You are essential to our mission!

When you give a gift of any amount to the Cade Museum, you enable us to deliver vital educational experiences to those without equal access to STEAM education. Together, we can close the education gap in our community and spark wonder in the lives of the next generation.

The Cade Museum is a 501(c)(3) public charity, so donations are tax-deductible to the fullest extent permitted by law.
