The Fort Bend Children’s Discovery Center, a very special project of the Children’s Museum of Houston has reached its first milestone.
On March 15, with the efforts of capital campaign co-chairs: Debbie Fash, Jan Leaman, Rachel Leaman and Charlene Pate, the Discovery Center met the George Foundation’s $1 million matching challenge grant ahead of the October 2013 deadline set by the Foundation.
The Fort Bend Children’s Discovery Center will be a year-round children’s museum serving children from birth to age 12.
It is scheduled to open at the historic Imperial Development in the summer of 2015, occupying a 10,000 square foot restored building and housing six exhibits with an additional outdoor space.
The project will enrich the educational lives of Fort Bend’s children by expanding cultural and educational family-focused opportunities.
