Leave a Legacy to the Museum and Become Part of the Monroe Society

The Monroe Society has been created to honor our legacy donors for their commitment to the mission of the Children’s Museum of Phoenix to engage the minds, muscles and imaginations of children and the grownups who care about them.

Through a generous charitable provision in a will, trust or by designation of a future gift of insurance or retirement assets, each Monroe Society Member ensures the continued vitality and growth of the Children’s Museum of Phoenix. These supporters make an extraordinary living gift to provide unconditional support in childhood education and school readiness for children from birth to 10.

Benefits of Membership

As our thank you to members of the Monroe Society we extend lifetime benefits that include:

  • Recognition, with your permission, in the Children’s Museum’s annual report as a member of the Monroe Society.
  • Invitation to the Monroe’s Society’s private receptions and other Children’s Museum of Phoenix events throughout the year.
