The Indo American Forum of Fort Bend (IAF) has extended support for the Fort Bend Children’s Discovery Center:  A Very Special Project of the Children’s Museum of Houston with a $10,000 donation.

The IAF represents the growing Indo American community of Fort Bend as a positive and contributing force in the local area with the purpose encouraging and promoting participation in social, cultural and civic affairs.

“We are excited the Children’s Museum of Houston is coming to Fort Bend, right at our door step,” said Jasmin Patel, IAF chairman.  “The next generation of Fort Bend residents will have the opportunity to learn and grow with easy accessibility to a state of the art facility.

The IndoAmerican community values education as a number one priority and will continue to support entities like the Fort Bend Children’s Discovery Center,” said Patel.

The Fort Bend Children’s Discovery Center is now scheduled to open in the new Imperial development in Sugar Land in the summer of 2016.

Six exhibits managed as platforms for learning for children, birth through 12 years, will focus on childhood questions such as “How Does It Work?,” Where Does It Come From,?” and “Can I Solve That?”

Naming opportunities are still available, ranging from exhibit naming at the $250,000 level, to painted tiles priced from $2,500 to $500.  To make a charitable donation, please contact Capital Campaign Manager Tracy Golden at (281) 494-0297 or tgolden@cmhouston.org.
