Request A Donation | Hands-On House

Hands-on House, Children’s Museum of Lancaster is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping kids learn and making sure that they have lots of fun in the process! In order to share the learning, we support the fundraising efforts of schools, nonprofits and not-for-profits in our community.

Who do we support?

  • Most of our donations are to groups and schools in Lancaster, York, Lebanon, Berks, Dauphin and Chester Counties.
  • We donate to schools, organizations, nonprofits, and not-for-profits whose primary mission is to educate and/or serve children under age 10.
  • We will donate to a group once in a twelve month period, or once in a school year.

Due to the high volume of requests received, we are unable to give to all of the worthy organizations that seek donations.

  • We do not donate money.
  • We do not give to private individuals or families, or those raising funds for them.

If your organization fits the above criteria, we will consider donating 2 admission passes (each good for one adult and one child). Please mail a letter of request with a self-addressed envelope to Hands-on House, Attn: Donation Request, 721 Landis Valley Road, Lancaster, PA 17601.
