Corporate Support

For 150 years, The Met has been able to realize its vision for the future thanks to the unwavering dedication of the business community. Today, corporate support helps The Met fulfill its mission by funding its operating budget, education programs, special exhibitions, and a variety of Museum-wide programs. We thank our corporate friends for their extraordinary commitment and loyalty to The Met.

For their leadership support, we would also like to acknowledge the current corporate partners listed below:

"Logos of corporate sponsors such as Bank of America, Bloomberg Philanthropies, Citi, Conde Nast, Louis Vuitton, MetLife Foundation, Morgan Stanley, and Reliance Foundation."

 Help us bring life to over 5,000 years of art with a tax-deductible gift, or through a partnership tailored to your company's philanthropic goals. Corporate giving strengthens our community, and we welcome your support.



Exhibition Sponsorship

Sponsorship of The Met's exhibitions, performances, programs, benefit events, and new initiatives is available at various levels.

Corporate sponsorship provides significant brand exposure across media, promotion through The Met's extensive global press network, creative activation and content opportunities, product development and licensing, and unparalleled access to the Museum for client and employee engagement. The Met works collaboratively with its corporate sponsors to develop partnerships that are tailored to meet strategic business objectives and marketing goals.

The Met is the most visited art museum in the United States and the top tourist attraction in New York City. In addition to the 7 million on-site visitors to our galleries and events in a typical year, the Museum has nearly 38 million web visitors annually, over 11 million followers on social media, and countless more who participate in our robust slate of digital programs. We invite you to join us in a conversation about how we might deepen your company's engagement with The Met's global audience and further its philanthropic commitment to the arts.
