The San Diego Museum of Art welcomes the opportunity to create meaningful relationships with corporate sponsors. Companies that promote arts and culture directly benefit the San Diego community. We welcome corporations’ assistance in the form of cash sponsorships, gifts-in-kind, and matching gifts.
Partners in Art program: Significant resources are required to preserve, protect, and present great achievements in art. The corporate community, through the Partners in Art program, helps maintain the quality of the collections, support visiting exhibitions, and ensure the growth and accessibility of the Museum. This special group of leaders shares a passion for art and supports the vital and extensive contributions that The San Diego Museum of Art makes to the community, to its members and donors, and to visitors from all over the world. Our Partners-in-Art program is a business partnership with the Museum that brings increased visibility to corporations along with many other benefits. All levels of sponsorship provide exceptional value for the contribution, including recognition and enhanced networking.

The Museum works closely with each corporate sponsor to establish a benefit package that ensures prominent visibility among a large and diverse audience.

Charitable giving is a powerful business tool
Savvy companies know that there’s more to being in business than just making money. In today’s business climate, corporate social responsibility is as important as the bottom line. In fact, it can be a key strategy to increasing the bottom line and keeping employees and shareholders engaged. Consider these facts:
Customers with a favorable impression of a company’s charitable activities are three times more likely to be loyal customers.
Employees who believe in their company’s philanthropy are five times more likely to remain with that employer.
82% of shareholders are influenced by a company’s corporate citizenship reputation when deciding whether or not to buy that company’s stock.
