Through their generous support, members of the corporate and business community play a vital part in making history come alive at Ford’s Theatre. Corporations both large and small generously provide funds to further the mission of Ford’s Theatre—to celebrate the legacy of President Abraham Lincoln and explore the American experience through theatre and education.
Board of Governors
Ford’s Theatre has a long history of outstanding corporate support, perhaps best illustrated by our Board of Governors. This corporate membership program has provided vital funding to Ford’s Theatre for more than 40 years, and many of our most steadfast supporters participate. Members of the Board of Governors include corporations, associations and foundations that are dedicated to supporting our high-quality programs and performances as we celebrate Lincoln’s legacy. With ambitious productions and an expanding education program, this support is more important than ever.
In 2010, Ford’s Theatre began offering its nearly 700,000 visitors a self-guided hand-held audio/multimedia tour of the renovated museum and theatre – Acoustiguide. Acoustiguide gives our visitors the opportunity to connect with Abraham Lincoln’s legacy and invite them to explore his leadership.
Ford’s offers two guide versions, an adult guide and a youth guide (ages 8 and up) and as the sponsor of this service your company will have the opportunity to reach thousands of visitors of all ages and provide an important service at Ford’s Theatre.
Site Map Sponsorship
Each year, more than 700,000 visitors from across the country and world come to Ford’s Theatre to learn about President Lincoln’s legacy, and each of these visitors will use a site map to take full advantage of all that the Ford’s Theatre campus has to offer. These visitors include school groups from across the country, families visiting Washington, DC and visitors from abroad.
As the sponsor of the site map, your company would see hundreds of thousands of impressions, and would have the opportunity to work with Ford's to include special offers to these visitors, and take the visitor experience online.
