Corporate Giving


Architects in Discussion

Corporate sponsorship today is more compelling than ever before. A 2011 report, Culture Track, states that almost 40 percent of survey respondents are likely to purchase goods or services from corporations that support the arts and culture. Additionally, 53 percent of respondents agreed that corporate sponsorship of the arts makes them more receptive to the sponsor's messaging. These numbers are even higher in frequent arts attendees and patrons, who tend to be more highly educated, with higher incomes.

Not only is sponsorship an effective business development tool, but support from corporations and associations also plays a vital role in enabling the National Building Museum to present a variety of exceptional exhibitions and educational programs. By investing in the Museum's singular mission, your organization will form a mutually beneficial partnership that enhances your organization's visibility and prestige as well as ensure that the Museum remains an educational institution of excellence.

Your organization can support the Museum in a variety of ways:

  • Join the Capital Society: Receive exciting benefits for your organization and its employees, including free or reduced admission to Museum exhibitions and programs, access to exclusive networking events, professional continuing education credits at talks and adult programs, discounts at the award-winning Museum Shop, and brand exposure on Museum marketing materials.
  • Join the Capital Council: A dynamic, interdisciplinary forum for the National Building Museum’s key stakeholders, the Capital Council offers members opportunities to network, engage, and discuss industry trends and ideas.
  • Sponsor an exhibition or education program: Whether you choose to support an exhibition on modernist architecture, a design apprenticeship program for high school students, or a lecture series focused on environmental sustainability, the Museum offers many ways to capture the interests of your organization and its constituents.

Whichever opportunity you choose, your organization’s support will be prominently recognized in a variety of related publications and marketing materials. To begin a partnership with the National Building Museum and further your organization’s philanthropic goals, please email sponsorship@nbm.org or call 202.272.2448.
