Generous corporate and individual sponsors provide critical support for museum programs through customized partnerships that benefit both the Museum and the sponsoring organization.

Becoming a Gardner Museum Sponsor

Since the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum opened in 1903, it has inspired and transformed visitors. Now, the Renzo Piano-designed wing enhances the experience of the Gardner’s world-class collection and infuses the Museum with vibrant artistic activity. We invite you to partner with us – immersing your employees and clients in the imaginitive spirit and commitment to the arts for which Isabella Gardner was renowned, while providing critical annual support for our mission.

Program sponsorships begin at $25,000 and are customized to help accomplish your philanthropic and business goals. We offer a range of hospitality and branding benefits, including exclusive entertaining opportunities, VIP access to programs and special events, and recognition in marketing and advertising campaigns (a reach of more than 33 million in 2012).

Corporate Membership

Provide clients, executives, and employees with access to world-class art and educational programming. Corporate Membership begins at $2,500 and benefits include free admission, invitations to exhibition previews and special events, tickets to lectures and concerts, behind-the-scenes access, and more.
