Corporate Partner Program

The Richard H. Driehaus Museum invites you to become a distinguished Corporate Partner. Your support helps educate thousands of visitors each year about the art and architecture of the Gilded Age, a time when pioneering corporate leaders intertwined technological advances with cultural innovation to transform civic life.

ACCESS
Your corporate membership includes:
• Complimentary Admission
• Invitations to exhibition previews reserved for Corporate Partners
• Opportunities to host private company events in our stately and luxurious Gilded Age setting*
• Museum store discounts

ALIGNMENT
The Nickerson Mansion was twice saved by Chicago businessmen, once in 1919 by a coalition of over 100 concerned citizens, and again in 2003 when Richard H. Driehaus restored its beauty and created this museum. Today’s generous business leaders are part of the great American legacy of corporate impact on a thriving culture of the arts for the betterment of the community.

RECOGNITION
All Corporate Partners receive recognition of support on the Driehaus Museum website. As a Corporate Partner, you will enjoy exclusive opportunities to elevate corporate visibility, increase community engagement, and enhance employee benefits.
