donation guidelines

If you meet the below criteria, please fill out the request form at the bottom of this page.

To receive a donation, organizations must be a 501c3 or have equivalent status. The Museum gives preference to schools and to education organizations based in Washington, D.C., that serve children and/or families.

Organizations may receive one donation once per calendar year. Organizations or events are not guaranteed donations each year. 

Due to a high volume of requests, the Museum can not guarantee that your request will be filled. 

Donation requests must be submitted at least 60 days prior to the event. The Museum reviews submissions once a month. 

The standard donation from the Museum is four (4) general admission tickets (a value of $63.80). Please note that children must be accompanied by at least one adult, and that adults must be accompanied by a child to enter the Museum. All requests will be considered on an individual basis.
