Corporate Support

The Strong museum offers a singular opportunity for businesses to partner with a beloved community organization that enjoys fierce brand loyalty among its members and other guests. Museum staff members take great pride in working with businesses to develop strategic sponsorship packages that directly support corporate marketing and branding initiatives. 

Sponsorship of an exhibit or program at The Strong allows a business to increase its visibility among the region’s largest consumer base of families with children while also supporting a vital educational resource.

Businesses that provide financial support to The Strong also receive valuable benefits for their employees. Corporate Sponsors and Corporate Partner members enjoy free museum admission on selected days, admission passes, discounts on membership and facilities rental, and more. Corporate Sponsors receive even more benefits and opportunities for sustained visibility.
