Phase I: Become a registered organization through the state of Washington, establish a Board of Directors, apply for 501(c)3, build community awareness and support. Host first “pop-up” event, start outreach to potential community partnerships.
Phase II: Work with the Washington Small Business Development Center (WSBDC) to formulate strategic planning, evaluate feasibility, and create a plan for the future of the museum. Meet with community members, local businesses, corporations, and individuals to gain support for the project.
Phase III: Conduct a feasibility study to determine the size of museum our community will support. Begin Capital Campaign, plan and develop exhibits, review and solidify building site, site plans, and building plans, solidify community partnerships.
Phase IV: Obtain a permanent location. Break ground and get to work. Our community children’s museum in a permanent location will soon be a reality!
