Individual Giving

Annual Fund

The Children’s Museum Annual Fund is made up of hundreds of operating gifts from generous individuals, grandparents, families, members, Board, staff and friends like you. 

Annual Fund support directly impacts the Museum’s daily operations and helps to ensure that each and every visitor has a one-of-a-kind, interactive experience. This type of ongoing, annual support is the foundation on which the Children’s Museum has built its reputation as a world-class educational and cultural institution, one of Pittsburgh’s most treasured museums and a vibrant resource for our Northside community.

To maintain and expand our service, support for exhibits, education and subsidized admission programs is critical. Please consider making a 100% tax-deductible contribution to the Children’s Museum Annual Fund today.

Employer Matching Gifts

Many companies match the charitable donations made by their employees. If you or your spouse work for or are retired from a company that offers this benefit, your gift to the Children’s Museum may be doubled or even tripled. Please ask your company's Human Resources department about matching gifts.

Employer Charitable Giving Programs

Many employers offer charitable giving programs that allow contributions to be directly deducted from your pay check. The Children’s Museum works with most employers to make your giving automatic and effortless. If your company participates in a United Way workplace campaign, or if you are a federal civilian, military or postal employee, we encourage you to give through your organization’s charitable giving programs.
