G-PAC Members will be asked to complete two years of service on behalf of the mission of CML. G-PAC meets as a full group four times a year and will break into working groups as needed to focus on priority projects. Time commitments may vary depending on projects undertaken and may involve occasional “take-home” tasks.


G-PAC Members are expected to contribute a minimum of $250 per year of service (September – May). The funds raised each year through donations are returned to CML in a variety of ways.

As a Donor Level Member, you will enjoy enhanced membership benefits and invitations to special events, while also providing philanthropic support to CML. At the $250 level, your benefits include:

– General admission for up to two named adults and all children in one household

– Additional Caregiver Pass for a third, unnamed adult to bring your children to CML

– 8 individual one-day passes for admission

– Association of Children’s Museums (ACM) reciprocal benefits (these benefits offer half-off admission cost for any other participating museum)

– 2 tickets to your choice of CML’s annual events

– 15% discount on camps, birthday parties and classes at CML

– Tax-deductible contribution

– Recognition in CML’s Annual Report
