Sponsorship

When you support the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History through sponsorship, you are doing much more than aligning your brand with a revered Santa Barbara institution. You are supporting real and relevant science. You are supporting educational programs for people of all ages. You are supporting our efforts to reconnect people with nature, to combat “nature deficit disorder,” and to inspire the next generation of environmental stewards.

Sponsorships offer the opportunity to make a charitable gift while also gaining recognition for your organization both inside the Museum and throughout our community through our extensive marketing and communication efforts. There are many sponsorship opportunities at a variety of levels, with generous benefits available. Additionally, some opportunities offer exclusivity for your organization, allowing us to shine a spotlight on your organization and your organization only at those programs and events. With sponsorship opportunities as low as $500, Museum and Sea Center programs and events are a great way to explore the possibilities of a Museum partnership.

Throughout the year, the Museum offers numerous possibilities for sponsorship, including:
