Sponsorship Opportunities

Monthly Sponsorship Opportunity

To offset the cost to keep the museum open to the public seven days per week free of charge to all visitors, the museum has implemented a monthly sponsorship program open to all area businesses, corporations, and individuals.

The details: The cost is $2,500 for each monthly sponsorship and is 100 percent tax deductible. Sponsors may purchase additional months or set up a recurring monthly sponsorship if desired.

The benefits: In addition to the intangible benefits received from donating to this important community resource, your organization will receive the following:

  • Name on sign in museum lobby for ONE MONTH. (~3,500 people reached)
  • Name listed for ONE YEAR in lobby listing calendar year’s monthly sponsors. (~60,000)
  • Company mentioned in monthly e-newsletter and other social media outlets. (~3,000)

PLUS your organization is eligible to:

  • Display brochures, business cards, or other pre-approved materials in designated lobby areas or at designated events during the sponsorship month. (~4,000)


  •  Reserve the museum for one after-hours rental (based on availability, restricted to the year of your gift)
