For the past ten years, The Music Man Square has provided fun and educational exhibits, events and programs for children, families and people throughout North Iowa. Parents have told us that they value The Music Man Square as a place they can bring their children where they can learn, broaden their imagination and spark their creativity.
And, during this time, we have hosted over 615,000 guests and visitors from across the country and around the world. We have received wide recognition from media and travel magazines and in recent years have been ranked as one of the most popular 'must see' cultural attractions in the Midwest.
We depend on you and people like you, who value the Square and the benefits we provide our community, to help us with your financial support. Our earned income (from room rentals, fees, admissions, gift shop sales, etc.) covers 73% of our operating and programming costs. We depend on our members and donors to help with the budget gap.
Ways you can help:

The company you work for can become a Corporate Sponsor.
Honorarium donations provide a perfect way to honor and recognize a friend, colleague, former teacher or family member.
Memorials offer the opportunity to remember and honor a loved one.
Gifts to our "Adventures in Music" Fund help make sure that no child is left out of the opportunities offered in our student programming. We are committed to making all our programs accessible to all children and families.
Several North Iowa companies will match your donation through their gift matching program.
Year end gifts are a favorite of some people who want to support their community and receive a tax deduction.
Bequests and other estate planning gifts ensure that we will be able to sustain and expand our programs now and many years into the future.
