Institutional Partners


The Corporate Partner program offers an exceptional opportunity for members of the business community to forge partnerships with the Nasher Museum. Corporate Partners receive benefits to complement their level of involvement, from publicity and recognition to free employee admission and discounts on the museum’s facility rental rates for private events.

Foundation and Government

Gifts from foundations and government agencies who share the museum’s vision are critical for success.  These organizations enable the museum to fulfill its mission to promote engagement with the visual arts among a broad community.

We are grateful to our partners – both large and small – who help strengthen the Nasher Museum’s core programming through generous financial support.  Whether $5,000 for K-12 education and community outreach programs and bus scholarships, $50,000 in support of an exhibition, or $500,000 to increase, deepen and extend Duke student and faculty engagement, all levels of support are needed and very much appreciated.
