Explore & More Children's Museum is now $500,000 closer to meeting its fundraising goal for the new museum coming to Canalside.
KeyBank and its partner, First Niagara Foundation, on Thursday announced the donation toward construction of the four-story museum.
“It is through the generosity of KeyBank and many others that this community will see this remarkable facility completed this year," said David McNamara, who chairs the fundraising campaign. "We are continuing our efforts to raise the remaining $7.25 million needed to achieve our goal, and are encouraged by the interest and enthusiasm of all who learn of the benefits this project will deliver to our community. "
“Canalside is bustling with year-round activity and KeyBank is proud to help continue the momentum with this gift to Explore & More,” said Gary Quenneville, KeyBank's Upstate New York regional executive.
