PROGRAM UNDERWRITING OPPORTUNITIES

Your support enables us to provide access to all. Currently, we are in need of support to underwrite:

Field Trip Scholarships

Every week during the school year, we welcome school groups for field trips, which include curriculum development with teachers, a pre-museum visit lesson and educational support materials that are aligned with Common Core State Standards. You can help us offer field trips free of charge to Title 1 Schools across Los Angeles County to ensure all students have enrichment opportunities outside of the classroom to support their academic growth.

Field Trip Transportation

While we dedicate part of public programming to subsidize field trips for students enrolled at Title 1 schools each year, some schools cannot take advantage of the opportunity due to lack of funding to cover charter bus or public transportation. Your sponsorship can help us offer free transportation to qualifying schools to improve educational outcomes and develop the leaders of tomorrow.

Class and Camp Scholarships

The Cayton will continue to offer signature classes for different age groups on a weekly basis, as well as an educational, play-based camp during spring, winter and summer breaks. Your sponsorship can help us provide scholarships to young visitors who cannot afford to participate.

Grandparents & Caregivers Museum Programming

At the Cayton, we recognize that positive role models come in many shapes and sizes. Several times a year, we will curate special days of programming and activities solely designed for children to bond with their grandparents and dedicated caregivers. This is a new program created exclusively for the all-new Cayton.

To learn more about underwriting opportunities, please contact our Director of Philanthropy, Carly Harrill, at carly@sharewell.org or 424-416-8327

CORPORATE SPONSORSHIP

As the only children’s museum of its kind in Los Angeles, the Cayton provides a unique opportunity for authentic brand integration and community engagement. Corporate sponsorship and naming opportunities are currently available.

The Cayton also offers a 21,000-square-foot playground for brand partnerships, press and influencer events, and corporate team building.
