You Are Our Future!

If you’re familiar with our history, you know that The Sandbox came to be through the generous donations of our Friends of The Sandbox—community members and local businesses. When we opened our doors in 2005 as a 501(C)3 non-profit organization we did so know that ALL our proceeds would go direction to the museum’s operating cost and special outread programs. Your donation, no matter how large or small, has an incredible impact to children right here in the Lowcountry. Each year we serve more than 5,000 children within our community via outreach programs, offer membership discounts to families in need and welcome field trips for low-income students. Contact us today to learn more.

In coming years we will be embarking on a new chapter of our legacy—breaking ground on a new building and new opportunities to serve our children, community and visitors. We welcome you—our members, guest and community partners—to join us on this exciting journey by making a contribution that will be recognized within the museum.

Thank you for your continued patronage and support!
