Corporate and Foundation Giving

The Corporate and Foundation Relations office works to facilitate and strengthen strategic partnerships with local and national companies and foundations. The generosity of these partners enables the Newseum to bring an understanding of the personal freedoms of the First Amendment and an enriched civic education to our visitors, through relevant and high-level exhibits, programs and educational resources.

Corporations and foundations are encouraged to explore the ways they can leverage their resources through a relationship with the Newseum.

Exhibition and Program Sponsorships

Exclusive and shared exhibit sponsorship opportunities are available for our wide array of exhibits. Each sponsorship is custom-designed to align with philanthropic or business goals. Exhibit sponsors enjoy on-site, online and media recognition for their support of the Newseum. In addition to our exhibits, the Newseum hosts a variety of programming throughout the year, featuring nationally recognized media personalities, celebrities, policy experts, authors, and politicians on myriad topics. Sponsorship opportunities exist for many of these program series as well.

Donor Spotlight

BuzzFeed News

Thanks to a generous gift from BuzzFeed, the Newseum and BuzzFeed News partnered on the recent program series “BuzzFeed Brews @ the Newseum,” which shone a light on current political issues. BuzzFeed’s support of this series allowed the Newseum to share policymakers’ views on the importance of civil discourse, criminal justice reform, the impact of the 2016 election, and what to expect in beginning days of the new administration. Speakers included Sen. Cory Booker, Sen. Mike Lee, Neera Tanden, Sen. Harry Reid, Rep. Joaquin Castro, and members of the Freedom Caucus. The Newseum would like to thank BuzzFeed for its support of this series.
