Campaign for Cognition

Invest in Imagination and Innovation

Cognition is a vital asset to our community, inspiring curiosity and creativity in children and adults alike. As a cherished destination for school field trips, educational play, and STEAM learning, Cognition has already made a significant impact by fostering creativity, critical thinking, and a passion for discovery.

To continue our growth and ensure sustainability, we need to hire an Executive Director who will bring expertise and strategic vision. This key leadership role will enhance our programs, forge new partnerships, and secure our future.

Your contribution to our “Cognition Challenge” will help us raise $100,000 to empower the next generation of innovators. The Mebane Foundation and Davie Community Foundation have pledged to each give us an additional $25,000 if we reach our fundraising goal of $100,000 by the end of the year. Every dollar you contribute will have an even greater impact, helping us make a lasting difference in the lives of countless children and families.
