Corporate Support & Sponsorship

Corporate Support

The University Museums offers opportunities for large and small businesses to be an active part of the museum. Corporate membership provides vital funding for the museum's programs and activities. In turn, corporations receive benefits that offer community recognition and opportunities for company employees and representatives to experience museum exhibitions and programs. Benefits increase with each membership level. For more information, please contact Rachael Karriker, director of development at 515-294-0546 or

Sponsorship Opportunities

University Museums offer businesses opportunities to support special projects such as exhibitions, educational programs and special events. Sponsorships of exhibitions, for example, provide businesses and corporations with additional visibility through name/logo recognition on the gallery walls, on the museum's website, in press releases related to the exhibition, and in printed announcements. Benefits of corporate membership are given to companies who sponsor museum exhibitions and programs.

In-Kind Donations

University Museums rely on corporate/business donations of in-kind goods and services to support its program and reduce costs. Contributions such as refreshments for events, technology, and storage space have been crucial to the success of recent programs. Corresponding opportunities for recognition are available.
