Gary and Amy Cebulski
Gary and Amy Cebulski believe that play at the Building for Kids is a vital extension of the education process. It’s a place where kids can learn and develop in a fun, yet impactful way through hands-on experiences. One of the areas they enjoy watching this happen the most is in the Babies and Toddlers Around the World exhibit – a favorite with their young grandchildren. They see how even the simple, repeated act of walking up a ramp and sending a ball down a tube can have a huge effect on a child’s development.
Not only do Gary and Amy see the immediate benefits of having the Building for Kids in their family’s life, but they also recognize the future benefits for the whole community. “If others want to continue to live in a thriving and vibrant community, they need to support organizations like the Building for Kids to keep it all going,” says Amy.
Gary and Amy are founding members of the Dr. John and Sally Mielke Bold Hearts Legacy Circle, meaning they have made a planned gift which will continue to make an impact on play-based learning at the Building for Kids beyond their lifetime. “For us, it’s a way of showing appreciation for everything it’s done for our family’s life,” explains Gary. The Cebulskis have been visiting the Building for Kids since it opened in the 1990s, first with their kids and now with their grandkids.
They chose to make their planned gift known to the Building for Kids to aid with the museum’s long-term planning. As a previous employee, Gary understands how the Building for Kids operates as a non-profit and the benefits of being aware of future gifts. Their dream for the museum is to have a strong, financially-stable future, so it can continue to offer creative, consistent, and relevant programming to kids and families in the community.
