"You can dream, create, design, and build the most wonderful place in the world, but it requires people to make the dream a reality."—Walt Disney

Since opening over 10 years ago, we have sought to make the museum a place where our guests could find animation, innovation, and inspiration and immerse themselves in the remarkable life story of Walt Disney—the man who raised animation to an art, tirelessly pursued innovation, and created a distinctly American legacy, transforming the entertainment world. Donations help ensure future generations will continue to be inspired by Walt Disney’s life and legacy by supporting the museum’s unique galleries, special exhibitions, public programs, and educational efforts.

The Walt Disney Family Museum is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organization, and donations are fully tax deductible. The museum’s EIN is 46-4118590. For more information about making a contribution, please call 415.345.6829.
