Student Museum Experience Fund

Inspiring action against injustice and promoting respect for others.

The Committment: $708,750

The Dallas Holocaust and Human Rights Museum was founded in 1984 by a group of Holocaust survivors to teach the history of the Holocaust, advance human rights, and combat prejudice, hatred and indifference. The museum’s vision is to educate and inspire the community — especially children - to commit to being “Upstanders” who will act against injustice and promote human dignity.

Crystal Charity Ball will provide three years of funding for the Museum Experience Fund, ensuring that thousands of Title I and economically disadvantaged students in Dallas County will visit the museum free of charge. The grant includes transportation, teacher curriculum support, and written student materials. Approximately 13,500 students, ages 12-18, will visit the museum each of the three years.
