“By partnering with Illinois Holocaust Museum & Education Center, Chicago area businesses will reinforce the message that the Holocaust must not be repeated, that other atrocities against mankind can be prevented, and that businesses taking an active role will make a meaningful difference.”
— John Rowe, Former Chairman, Board of Trustees, Illinois Holocaust Museum & Education Center
Corporate Partners Make an Impact
When you become a Corporate Partner, you have an opportunity to extend your brand as we reach more youth and adults. Participating in this program demonstrates your commitment to community involvement, corporate responsibility, and diversity. Corporate Partnership opportunities range from $5,000 to $100,000 and above and offer valuable benefits for your employees and community.
Education is at the heart of the Museum’s mission to engage youth and adults to speak out for justice, fairness, and respect within their own communities. Each year, Illinois Holocaust Museum & Education Center attracts a local, national, and international audience of more than 100,000 students and adults representing diverse ages, races, and backgrounds to learn from the Museum’s interactive educational exhibits and programs. Teaching diversity and inclusiveness are central to the way the Museum honors the legacy of the Holocaust.
We can reach a larger audience together. Many more students, schools, and communities will benefit from the Museum’s programs as well as its diversity and anti-bullying initiatives, but it takes increased resources and partners. Join us in this important initiative. Together, we can make a difference.
You can support the Museum through a variety of programs, aggregating benefits with increased support:
- Exhibit Sponsorship: The Museum offers an annual calendar of compelling exhibits and complementary public programming on diverse topics ranging from historical events to current issues.
- Program Support: The Museum offers a multitude of public and student programming. From Opportunity Scholarships for schools to public programs such as family days and film and lecture series, there are many ways the corporate community can underwrite important education initiatives.
- Special Event Sponsorship: The Museum’s premier special event, the annual Humanitarian Awards Dinner, as well as events offered by its Women’s Leadership Committee provide options for corporate support and further engagement.
“The Museum provides us with a vital link to the past: a constant reminder of the horror that unfolded for 12 years — and the world’s blind eye for too long. Just as important is the Museum’s view towards the future — the work the Museum does to teach the children of today acceptance, tolerance and the richness of our differences.”
— Larry Richman, President and CEO, CIBC
On Wednesday, September 16, John Rowe and J.B. Pritzker hosted a breakfast networking event at 1871 to launch Illinois Holocaust Museum & Education Center’s new Corporate Partnership Program. Those who attended the breakfast learned how their company can join the Museum’s efforts in reaching out to the community.
