Igniting Potential

“The more we give to a cause, the more precious the cause becomes.” – Lucy Wheelock

24 hours. 12 Organizations. 1 Cause. September 12, 2018.

In past years, Pretend City held 24 hour giving days once a year. Remember, #iheartoc? Together, we celebrated our mini city, early child education, and what it means to be part of a vibrant, unique, and fun educational community. We have the opportunity this year to build on the success of past giving days through a re-envisioned campaign collaborating with 11 other nonprofits that help Orange County’s youth.

Igniting Potential, A Giving Day to Support the Youth of Orange County, is taking action to help shape Pretend City’s future. When we all give, even the smallest gifts add up to make a significant difference. When we come together, we inspire generosity.

This year, we look forward to Igniting Potential on September 12, and we invite everyone – parents, grandparents, volunteers, board members, staff, and community leaders, to support the museum by making a gift and sharing what Pretend City means to you.

Collectively, we believe in the importance of collaboration, diversity, accomplishment, and a sense of belonging. As we focus on these values, it is critical for the museum’s future that we work together to build a strong sense of philanthropy and action.

Volunteers are our lifeblood. If you would like to help build excitement around our 24 hour Igniting Potential Giving Day by serving as an online or in-the-museum ambassador, please contact Sue Harrison, director of development, at 714-428-3900 or sue.harrison@pretendcity.org.

Thank you for all you do to help build better brains at Pretend City.
