Corporate Partner Program

The Richard H. Driehaus Museum invites you to become a distinguished Corporate Partner.  This program is open to businesses aligned with tenets upon which The Marble Palace was conceived in 1879 and gifted back to the Chicago community in 2008:  entrepreneurial ambition, business excellence, artistic achievement, and the spirit of philanthropy.

Your unrestricted annual corporate gift plays a vital role in preserving the historic and cultural significance marked by this architectural jewel of the American Gilded Age.  And, it allows the Driehaus Museum to continue educating thousands of visitors each year through its permanent collection, special exhibitions, annual programs, and tours – each an immersion in a time and place where pioneering corporate leaders intertwined technological advances with cultural innovation to transform civic life, a torch still carried by today’s influential and generous corporate leaders.

As a Corporate Partner, you will enjoy very special access to increased corporate recognition, heightened community engagement, and enhanced employee benefits.

To learn more about joining our elite family of corporate supporters, please contact our Office of Institutional Advancement at 312-874-5911, or email OIA@DriehausMuseum.org.
