Corporate Partner Program

Corporate Partners send a strong message to employees – and the community – about their understanding of the importance of early education to a child’s lifelong success. Corporate Partners are key partners in supporting the Museum’s mission and community outreach programs that provide access to the Museum’s early learning resources. The Museum is pleased to provide a variety of recognition and benefits to these business and philanthropic leaders. As a corporate member, your company can feel proud to support exciting, interactive exhibits and important education programs to the children in our region. These young scientists, artists and engineers engaged in learning at the Museum today will become 21st century innovators and leaders tomorrow.
