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. Sponsors may purchase additional months or set up a recurring monthly sponsorship to secure a particular month over time, 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. (~4,000 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. (~4,000)

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)

AND/OR
