Ned and Margaret Barclay graciously established The Children's Museum of Wilmington Endowment in 2009 to ensure the Museum had continuing support. In 2018, they generously offered a $25,000 match challenge which the Museum successfully met. Ned and Margaret are remarkable friends of the Museum, consistently involved, and breath life into our Mission.

"We first began supporting The Children's Museum many years ago when we had young grandchildren and saw the benefit of the many different experiences they enjoyed. We helped establish The Children's Museum of Wilmington Endowment Fund when we realized that such a fund would give the Museum a perpetual source of needed income into the future."
