Join Ruth Allison Lilly Society
Ruth Allison Lilly was one of the museum's earliest benefactors and gave generously to The Children's Museum during her lifetime and through generous bequests. She was among the visionaries who helped establish the museum as a world-class educational and cultural institution. Ruth Allison Lilly Society was created in her honor to recognize those donors who support the museum through estate and planned gifts.
Members of the society receive:
- Recognition in museum publications, including the annual report (unless the donor requests anonymity)
- Invitation to an annual special recognition event at the museum
