Exhibit and Event Sponsorships

Sponsorships for exhibits and festivals offer the chance to reach audiences through marketing campaigns and unique festival events. The Academy hosts three traveling exhibits each year, as well as four seasonal family festivals: Paleopalooza, Bug Fest, Earth Day, and the Philadelphia Shell Show.

Over a three-month span, traveling exhibits typically receive 50,000 visitors, while festivals attract approximately 2,000 visitors over the course of a single weekend. Sponsorships make these high-quality museum events possible, and offer excellent marketing exposure for companies.

Education Sponsorships

We reach more than 50,000 schoolchildren each year through museum visits and outreach programs. Education sponsors support subsidized admission and teacher workshops, as well the Academy’s ongoing education initiatives, including Women In Natural Sciences (WINS) and A Head Start on Science.

The Academy is an approved innovative educational institution through Pennsylvania’s Education Improvement Tax Credit Program (EITC). Corporations may receive tax credits of 75-90 percent of their contribution by supporting the Academy’s innovative educational programs.  

Profitable Pathways to Sustainability Membership This new initiative of the Academy’s Center for Environmental Policy helps companies find the business value and profitability in sustainable practices. Profitable Pathways membership is perfect for companies that wish to engage with the Academy at a more active level, through participation in seminars and workshops focused on sustainability topics. Can we help you? We are happy to customize any sponsorship package to meet your needs.
