Sponsorship Opportunities

Exhibitions
Exhibitions are the cornerstone of the museum’s programming. Exhibition sponsors are recognized throughout the duration of the exhibition, which is typically five months, and are invited to opening festivities.

Programs and Events
Take the lead in supporting a program, including a school tour, education program, festival, lecture, or special event. You can also serve as one of several sponsors for a specific project.

Corporate Support

Corporate sponsors of the George Washington University Museum and The Textile Museum enjoy brand visibility in a highly-educated, upper income demographic that lives, works, and plays in the nation’s capital.

Align your organization with exhibitions and events that attract art and culture enthusiasts, collectors, embassy partners, Washington’s cultural elite, young professionals, and the GW community of over 50,000 local alumni.

Reach specialty audiences—families, artists, young professionals—by sponsoring museum-led education programs or community outreach projects. Creative packages can be negotiated to meet your marketing and demographic needs.

Foundation and Trust Support

Foundation and trust support can be directed toward a specific exhibition, program, or equipment need. Recognition will be commensurate with the gift and may be negotiated to provide the foundation or trust with appropriate placement or anonymity.

To learn more about corporate and foundation giving opportunities, please contact Eliza Ward, director of development, at 202-994-5438.
