Local Support

We’re proud to support local non-profit organizations.

Children’s Museum Houston is proud to support local non-profit organizations with 501(c)(3) tax status and other approved organizations in their fundraising efforts through donation requests. Donation requests are only considered from organizations holding a raffle or auction, not as gifts/incentives for employees or students.

The Museum’s standard donation is four (4) complimentary admission passes, valued at $68.00. Monetary gifts are not donated and organizations are only eligible for one donation per calendar year.

Please keep in mind that while each request receives careful consideration by our Business Development department, we regret that we are unable to accommodate all requests.

Donation requests must be submitted at least two months in advance via the form below. No requests by phone, email or mail will be accepted.
