Planned Giving

The Museum is currently developing a planned giving program.  Please call us for more information or check back here on the website.

Capital Campaign

The Museum is looking for a new home! After 30 years, our landlords History Colorado, are looking at re-purposing the current home of DMMDT. While we'll be sad to leave our cottage by City Park, we're excited for the opportunity of a new facility with better parking, accessibility and collections storage. Read all about the campaign HERE or donate through ColoradoGives.org. If you would like to be part of the Capital Campaign Committee, Site Search Committee, Packing Team, or have any leads or ideas, please contact the Museum at director@dmmdt.org or 303-322-1053. 

Family Foundation

If you or your family have created a family foundation, the Museum welcomes an opportunity to respond to requests for grant proposals.

Memorials and Tributes

Honor the memory of a loved one by making a special Memorial Gift to the Museum in their name.  Celebrate a special occasion or accomplishment with a Tribute Gift for birthdays, anniversaries or graduations. The Museum sends an acknowledgment card to the honoree or family of the honoree. 


In-kind Donations

Due to unusually high donations during 2016, DMMDT is not able to accept any new donations at this time, as there is no space to store them nor staff time to process them.  If you have questions, please contact the Executive Director, Wendy Littlepage, at director@dmmdt.org or call the Museum at (303) 322-1053.


Artifacts

The Museum is currently going through a transition. The Museum will be relocating and therefore cannot accept all donations. If you wish for the Museum to consider your donation, please follow the email instructions below and send detailed descriptions and pictures. At this time it would be irresponsible of us to accept new objects without being 100% certain of where we will house them. If you are willing to hold onto your donation for at least 12 months we will likely be opening up donations in 2017/2018. 

The best way to ensure we can care for your items, as well as the 20,000 we currently have is to help with our capital campaign. Our capital campaign is currently underway with 100% commitment from the Board of Directors. We have hired a professional fundraiser to work with our site committee and are working diligently to find a suitable location. We encourage you to take part in this campaign so that we can continue to care for our unique collection in a new location. If you have questions about the capital campaign or a general museum question, please contact Wendy Littlepage, Museum Director at director@dmmdt.org or 303-322-1053. 

In order to determine if objects may be added to the collection, staff asks that you email a detailed description of the objects, including dimensions and condition and, if possible, photos. The photos and description will allow us to do research to determine if the objects fit into our current collecting goals and if we have the proper storage conditions for the objects. Objects that are considered for the collection must be approved by the staff, reviewed by a committee who works with the collection and approved by the Board of Directors.  Photos make this process much easier.  Our collections policy is available upon request. Please do not show up with your items. Staff may not be available to meet. We ask that you make an appointment directly with staff before bringing any objects to the Museum. You can send photos and descriptions to collections@dmmdt.org. 

Items we do not accept:

Given the limited amount of space at the museum and few avenues for selling items that have been donated for fundraising purposes we do not accept all types of donations for the collection or for fundraising.  
We do not accept items like dollhouse/doll magazines, dollhouse/doll making supplies, paint, collectible figurines that aren’t considered dolls or toys, unfinished dollhouses, and items that show any signs of insect or mold damage. Currently, we are not looking for international travel dolls, Madame Alexander dolls later than 1960, Nancy Anne Storybook dolls and McDonald's Toys. Due to the space constraints within our building, we are not currently considering finished dollhouses, expect those that are unique antiques or have a specific Colorado connection.  

For questions regarding the collection please email collections@dmmdt.org.

Supplies

The museum gladly accepts in-kind donations.  We need office supplies, cleaning supplies, supplies for our education workshops and more.  Please check our wish list for current needs.

Wish List
Standing lights, case lights, education supplies (brass brads, shoe boxes, small jewelry sized boxes, small lids, card stock, markers, glue sticks, craft supplies, leather or fabric scraps), large storage bins, new computer, laptop, exhibit cases.
