Montshire Corporate Associates

The Montshire Corporate Associates (MCA) is an ideal way for local businesses to engage with the Museum. Participation in our corporate membership program gives your employees increased access to the Museum, and it shows the community that your company is a valued partner.

The Montshire Museum shares your interest in a community that is economically and culturally vibrant. Serving nearly 150,000 visitors annually, Montshire helps foster the quality of life our community needs for a stable and strong workforce.

As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, Montshire relies on private contributions. MCA membership fees support educational exhibits and programs, as well as Museum access for families in need.

Whether you view your MCA membership as an employee benefit, marketing strategy, or philanthropic contribution, your participation is exceedingly valuable. Thank you for partnering with us to make our community a better place.
