Request for Donations

Please Touch Museum Policy on Donation Requests

As a non-profit organization, Please Touch Museum (PTM) appreciates the importance of special events as a way to raise funds for worthy causes. PTM will consider requests for donations for organizations that align with PTM’s mission to change a child’s life as they discover the power of learning through play.

PLEASE NOTE: Please Touch Museum receives hundreds of donation requests each month, but can only fulfill a small number of these requests. Due to the increased volume of donation requests, not all requests may receive a response.
