Corporate Sponsorship

Ideals That Unite Us

In the spirit of their vision and achievement, the Museum invites corporate participation through membership, sponsorship, philanthropy (including Pennsylvania’s EITC program), and promotional partnership. Financial contributions are tax deductible and provide essential support for the Museum’s educational and civic mission, community programs, and field trip scholarships.
