At the Santa Fe Children’s Museum, we give special credence to the adage that it takes a village to raise a child, and we’re working hard to build bridges in our community where none existed before. Through collaborations with organizations that have a broad community reach, institutions like ours are in a unique position to provide thousands of children every year with supplemental educational opportunities that positively reinforce a love of learning and the value of healthy social interactions. Whether it be through supporting our museum programs or donating to our initiatives, our partners are extremely valuable to us and how they support the mission of serving children and their families in the Santa Fe community.

If your organization or business is interested in establishing a partnership with the Santa Fe Children’s Museum, we would love to hear from you!
