SPONSORSHIP GIFTS AND LEVELS

Explorations V Children’s Museum offers a special recognition program for corporations and patrons wishing to support the Museum and help underwrite an exhibit or event.

Capital Gifts & Naming Opportunities

Capital gifts support the Museum’s expenses as owners of the Kress Building and could enable the Museum to purchase the building free and clear when the balloon mortgage expires.  These gifts are most often made via cash and appreciated stocks and bonds, and occasionally, through the contributions of property.

All capital gifts of $10,000 or more will be recognized for 20 years with a naming opportunity.

A beautiful plaque carefully placed in each sponsored area will honor each major contributor’s support. In addition, all donors of capital gifts and capital memorial gifts from $1,000 and more will be proudly recognized on a public donor wall display on the main floor.

Exhibit, Education and Event Gifts & Sponsorships

Exhibit Sponsorships offer the donor sole recognition in the designated exhibit area.

They are available to donors wishing to sponsor an exhibit for three years and begin at $3,000 per year.  Exhibit sponsorship supports related exhibit and operational expenses such as floor supervision staff, electrical, janitorial, heating/cooling, etc.

Education and Event Sponsorships are available to donors beginning at $250.  Event sponsorships offer shared recognition with other donors and support the Museum’s educational programming, staff, artists, performers, presenters and supplies.
