Donations Requests

Thank you for your interest in the Children’s Museum of the Lowcountry (CML). The Museum receives many requests annually for donations to support events sponsored by a wide range of local non-profits. CML is committed to supporting educational, children-oriented projects and we try to honor as many of these requests as possible by granting admission passes for a family of six to the Museum. Preference is given to local non-profits and fundraising events dedicated to helping children and families.

If you are interested in applying for a donation, please review the guidelines and complete the form below.

Admission passes provide free admission for a family of six during regular Museum hours (valid for one year from issue date) and may only be used as part of fundraising (e.g., auction, raffles).

A completed Donation Request Form and written request on organization letterhead must be either emailed (janine@exploreCML.org), faxed (843.853.1042, attn: Janine Bannier) or mailed to the address below:

Children’s Museum of the Lowcountry
Attn: Janine Bannier
25 Ann Street
Charleston, SC 29403

Requests must indicate if the organization is a tax-exempt non-profit under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code or provide information about the organization, company or agency that will benefit from the donation.

Requests must be received by CML a minimum of four weeks in advance of the date by which the donation is needed (e.g., an event date).

Requests are limited to one per organization per calendar year, certain exceptions may apply.

The admission passes may not be redeemed at CML for cash value and cannot be transferred by your organization for use by another organization/individual.

Lost, stolen or expired donated admission passes will not be replaced.

Due to the high volume of donation requests we receive, we may be unable to honor every request.

If the request is accepted, CML will mail the admission passes to the address provided on your Donation Request Form.

To submit a donation request to the Children’s Museum of the Lowcountry, please submit a completed Donation Request Form to Janine Bannier along with a written request on your organization’s letterhead.
