The Finlay Foundation Awards The Children’s Museum of New Hampshire $5,000 Donation
Nashua, NH, September 7, 2018 – The Finlay Foundation, a New Hampshire charitable organization, announces that they have awarded $5,000 to the Children’s Museum of New Hampshire for that organization’s Exploring Our Way, a program for children with Autism or on the Autism spectrum. Exploring our Way is now in its eighth year helping children with Autism navigate a museum visit with their families.
EOW occurs monthly on Sunday mornings when the Museum is closed. Families participate at no charge and admission is waived for those who stay when CMNH opens to the public. By opening the Museum at a special time, the calmer setting supports participants to play and explore, often resulting in parents being surprised by their children demonstrating skills and abilities they are not able to express in other environments.
Finlay Foundation President Karin Finlay shares, “We are delighted to support the Children’s Museum of New Hampshire’s Exploring Our Way program so that more of New Hampshire’s children can have comfortable access to the important childhood experience of attending a museum and learning in different environments. We hope lots of families will take advantage of this wonderful community resource”.
