Corporate Sponsorship

Impact the lives of children and families in the Quad Cities.


Corporate Partners enable the Family Museum to provide high-quality, innovative exhibits and experiences for children and families.  Each month, approximately 13,000 guests experience the unique, educational experiences offered at the Family Museum.  Field trip programs, Access Assistance programs, and Museum outreach programs enrich our community. Be part of making a difference in the lives of children and families in the Quad Cities.

Program Sponsorships

Family Museum Access Assistance Program - $2,500

The purpose of the Access Assistance program is to reach diverse populations in the Quad Cities and to make the Family Museum exhibits and programming accessible to all by providing affordable annual Household memberships to qualifying families. Awards are made based upon the income guidelines set by the Federal Free and Reduced Lunch program and provide a subsidy toward membership fees. 

Access Assistance memberships afford the bearer the same benefits as other Family Museum memberships.  These benefits include reciprocity at all Association of Science and Technology Center (ASTC) participating museums, invitations to exclusive “member only” events, and discounts on birthday parties and gift shop purchases and ensure our Access Families feel welcome and valued in our facility and at museums across the country. 

Family Museum on the Go (Summer 2020) - $2,500 Exclusive Sponsorship 

Each Friday during the summer, Family Museum staff jump in the Family Museum van and take the “Museum on the Go” to neighborhood parks in Bettendorf, Davenport, and Rock Island. From 10 a.m. to noon they bring fun, free activities to the neighborhoods and children.  From stomp rockets to bubbles, neighborhood kids can enjoy some outdoor fun in the sun.

The purpose of Museum on the Go is to reach audiences that otherwise might not be able to come to the Museum due to financial restrictions or transportation boundaries.  Weekly attendance ranges from 75 to 100 children.

First Place for First Grade - $4,000 Exclusive Sponsorship

Through this program, supported by local businesses and organizations, any first grade class in Scott and Rock Island County can visit the Family Museum at no charge! The Family Museum even pays for bus fees.  For many children this is the first and only time they might visit the Family Museum.  Last year, 2,207 first grade students visited the Family Museum through this program.  

First Place for First is charitably funded and spots are available on a first-come first-serve basis.  Increased funding would allow us to provide this field trip for more first grade classes in our community.
