Partnering with the Crocker Art Museum is good business and a great investment.

Sponsorships provide a range of recognition opportunities, hospitality benefits, and VIP access while supporting the varied exhibitions, operations, and educational efforts of the Museum.

Our strategic placement of your name or logo means dramatically increased recognition of your organization by the 1.4 million annual viewers of crockerart.org; the 125,000+ followers of the Museum on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter; the 28,000+ recipients of the Museum’s weekly e-news email; and the 250,000+ annual visitors to the Museum’s facility in downtown Sacramento.

Hospitality benefits may include complimentary Director’s Circle memberships, complimentary memberships for your family or associates, tickets to exhibition openings, customized gift baskets, and more.

VIP access options may include the opportunity to purchase tickets to Crocker Ball, the Museum’s longstanding fundraiser and the greater Sacramento region’s premier, black-tie gala. Crocker Ball is always sold out, year after year. Additionally, the Museum’s invitation-only events Founder’s Dinner is an annual gala of the top 50 donors to the Museum. Finally, VIP access options also include private exhibition tours with the Museum’s leadership – including, in many cases, Mort and Marcy Friedman Director and CEO Lial A. Jones.

These are just some of the many benefits of a sponsorship of the Crocker Art Museum.
