Donation Requests

The Children’s Museum of the Lowcountry is a (501)(c)(3) nonprofit and has been hard hit by the effects of COVID-19 and the ongoing pandemic. While we strive to fulfill donation requests, we cannot guarantee our ability to do so. Please fill out a donation request form and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

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. Please note: we are not able to fulfill out-of-state requests at this time.

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).

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. Family Day Passes may not be transferred or redeemed for any other CML purchase beyond admission, including, but not limited to, camps, memberships, and birthday parties.

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.
