Annual Operating Fund

Your support is needed to help ensure that LCM is a place where adults and children can share a world of learning through play.

Tribute Gifts
Making a Tribute Gift is a great way to honor or memorialize someone special. All tribute gifts will go towards the Annual Operating Fund unless otherwise designated and are a great way to support the Museum while recognizing someone who has made a difference in your life.

Be Our Guest Fund
The Be Our Guest Fund helps the Museum to provide underserved children in our community with the opportunity to experience the Museum as an informal educational facility. The Fund’s future depends upon the support of donors who value our city’s youth and want to make a difference in their lives.

Endowment Fund
