Children's Wall

Today’s Handprints. Tomorrow’s Performances.

The Kauffman Center Children’s Wall is a unique opportunity for you to recognize a child who is important in your life, while leaving a lasting impression on this landmark building. It also creates a lifelong bond and a tangible connection between a child and the arts.

For a $1,000 donation, payable over five years, your child’s colorful handprint will appear permanently on The Children’s Wall, a special area of distinction on the main entry level of the Kauffman Center. Participating children can live anywhere in the world and still take part as we can easily add a handprint to the wall, whether you drop by in person, communicate through the mail or chat with us online.

Tax deductible donations go to the Kauffman Center Futures Fund, which supports ongoing operations and ensures exceptional arts experiences for generations to come.

You Can Create a Handprint When and Where it is Most Convenient for You:


  • Visit the Kauffman Center

    Schedule an appointment to create your handprint at the Center at your convenience.

  • Create a Handprint at Home

    Kauffman Center staff can provide you instructions on how to make a handprint at home and submit it via mail or in digital format.

Each handprint includes the child’s name and age. Installation of new handprints on the Children’s Wall will occur every September to coincide with the Kauffman Center’s anniversary.
