2016 Monster Challenge Match a Huge Success

In August 2016, ACM executed an online fundraising campaign to raise dollars needed for the $350,000 expansion project at Lock 3.  More than 370 donors contributed to the effort, and each dollar was matched, thanks to several generous individuals.  A total of $90,000 was raised.

Akron Children's Musuem is beyond grateful to all online donors who helped complete the campaign successfully, and to the following for their generous lead matching gifts:

  • David and Barbara George
  • Roger Read/ The Read Family Foundation
  • Phil Maynard / The Maynard Family Foundation
  • The Gotshall/Hartschuh Family
