Lafayette, Colorado – WOW! Children’s Museum (World of Wonder) is pleased to announce that the Museum has received a $15,000 grant from the Buell Foundation. This generous grant will support a wide-range community assessment project with a focus on increasing WOW!’s services to low-income Latino families; a population that has been identified as the most at-risk in our community. The grant provides funds for program evaluation, market research, focus groups, and partnership development.
The results of the assessment project will help WOW! strengthen community connections, provide opportunities for parent education, and define creative ways to reach more at-risk students by providing subjects that children might be missing at school or at home. In addition, the assessment will help WOW! evaluate its current facility to ensure each exhibit is in alignment with the Museum’s education philosophy and to create a space that is inclusive and reflective of the community.
“WOW! Children’s Museum is committed to serving as a gathering place for all children and families in the North Metro Area. We believe that bringing diverse individuals together allows us to better understand, support and engage our community. We are working to make our Museum and our programs accessible, meaningful and welcoming to all audiences and these grant funds help support that work,” said Jennifer Hinderliter, Executive Director.
