SARATOGA SPRINGS — The Children’s Museum at Saratoga was recently awarded a $1,250 grant for its new “Give Play” initiative from the Christopher Dailey Foundation.

The Children’s Museum at Saratoga, located at 69 Caroline Street, is dedicated to creating an interactive community space that inspires curiosity, sparks imagination and nurtures discovery.

Recently, the museum launched its new Give Play initiative. It removes or reduces the financial and economic barriers that may prevent some children and their families from utilizing the Children’s Museum.

The goal is to raise $10,000 in the first year. The Christopher Dailey Foundation is the first foundation to support the new initiative.

In 2001, the Christopher Dailey Foundation was founded to honor the passing of young Christopher Dailey and to build a gym in his memory. That goal was completed in 2009, and now the foundation continues to enhance the community with donations to youth groups, especially economic- and special-needs children.

“This gift to the Children’s Museum at Saratoga is a step towards opening access to the museum for the broader community. We want to work to ensure that we’re able to give play to children with varying degrees of need to make sure that they too are getting access to high-quality early childhood educational programs that the museum has to offer,” says Executive Director Sarah Fisk. 

"This gift will begin to open our doors and make these scholarship field trips and outreach programs a reality for hundreds of children from across the Saratoga region.”
