Be a Superhero This Holiday Season
You can be a Superhero this holiday season by providing hundreds of kids and families access to a treasured community resource that has the power to enrich their lives.
The Children’s Museum at La Habra (CMLH)
Superheroes have big hearts and use their magic powers to make their communities better. During this holiday season, open your heart and use your magic power to give kids and families access to the Museum’s unique educational exhibits and programs.
Your gift can put smiles on the faces of kids by providing free field trips to the Museum and support families who can’t afford CMLH’s regular admission fee through the Museum’s Free Admission Days.
And this year, thanks to generous donors, your gift will be matched dollar for dollar, up to $20,000! A gift of any amount will help us fulfill our mission of encouraging hands-on learning that opens the world to even the youngest child!
So this holiday season… Have a Heart! Be a Hero! Make a Difference!
Celebrate our 40th anniversary year with a gift of $48, $140, $240, $480 or more!
As a Museum donor, you directly impact the lives of 90,000 children and families that visit the Museum each year. Help celebrate our 40th anniversary with your gift and share your support of CMLH on your Facebook or Instagram account!

2017 Giving: Special Tax-Free IRA Gifts
For those aged 70½ or older, it is once again possible to make tax-favored charitable gifts from traditional and Roth IRA accounts. On December 18, 2015 legislation was signed into law that makes the charitable IRA rollover provision permanent for future years. A total of up to $100,000 can be transferred directly from traditional or Roth IRAs to one or more qualified charities such as the Friends of the Children’s Museum at La Habra free from federal income tax each year.
There may also be state income tax savings.
Amounts given in this way count toward required IRA minimum withdrawal amounts for the year of the gift.
To make such gifts, it is important to not withdraw funds prior to a gift, but have the gift amount distributed directly from an IRA to one or more qualified charities.
For those with check writing privileges on their accounts, this may be the most efficient way to make gifts directly from an IRA.
Please contact Roy Mueller at firstname.lastname@example.org or 562-383-4242, your IRA administrator or your tax advisor for more information.
Give Big: Employers’ Matching Gifts
Many employers match their employee's financial gifts. Bring your donation receipt to your employer to see if they will double your gift to The Friends of the Children’s Museum at La Habra.
If you are in a position to offer a matching gift for our Be A Community Superhero campaign, please contact Roy Mueller at email@example.com or 562-383-4242.
