Our project has drawn significant interest from public and private funders. The state’s Downtown Revitalization Initiative and North Country Regional Economic Development Council have awarded nearly $2 million to Play ADK, with another $950,000 in private capital pledged as well. To unlock the full potential of this funding and to begin development of this unique and essential community resource and attraction, we need to reach some ambitious fundraising goals. 

We need your help to do it!

Become a Play ADK Founding Member

Block by block we hope to build something unique and essential for our community. Please consider being a critical player to bring Play ADK to life. The Play ADK Founding Member Campaign is designed to reach a goal of $150,000 through the generosity of individuals, businesses, and foundations. Capital from the campaign will be targeted to fund planning and operations for building and developing the new museum and resource center.

Play ADK Founding Members will be recognized on a distinctive building block as part of an interactive sculpture. This sculpture will be a permanent feature of the new museum and will celebrate, in a tangible way, your active role in and generous support of Play ADK.

Owl $600
Robot $1200

Become a Play ADK Super Hero

We know kids love superheroes, so we hope to recruit some of our own. By making a gift of $5,000 or more, you can become a Play ADK Superhero, immortalized with a Play ADK cape and in a comic book style mural at the entrance of the children’s museum. More importantly, you will play a critical role in helping us realize our ambitious timeline and bring this unique and essential community resource and attraction to the Adirondacks.
