“Remember that the happiest people are not those getting more, but those giving more.” --H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

We at the Museum of Teaching and Learning are grateful for you, one of the many generous people who plan to include us in their year-end giving. It makes a HUGE difference for us as we proceed to produce exhibitions and events that enact our mission, are relevant in today’s society, and are intriguing to visitors. Please include MOTAL in your year-end or to start the New Year contribution plans.
