Customized opportunities for corporate partners and sponsors
The Science Centre is proud to offer a variety of corporate sponsorship opportunities to companies committed to innovation, inspiration and the human adventure of discovery.
Our programs and exhibitions allow for a wide range of sponsorship and activation opportunities for your brand, including title naming of exhibit halls and spaces at the Centre, support of virtual and in person educational programming and experiential activations.
The unique programs and opportunities listed below are only possible with donor support. Corporate partners and sponsors ensure that the Science Centre can continue to create and deliver our unique offerings.
Please contact us for more information on current opportunities.
- Naming opportunities—Create a lasting legacy and ensure your organization is prominently displayed and associated with the Centre’s trusted brand.
- Special exhibitions and experiences—Connect with our visitors by sponsoring temporary exhibitions, special programs and experiences.
- School programs—Demonstrate your company’s commitment to developing the next generation of innovators by supporting school programs (attended by 165,000+ students annually, from kindergarten to Grade 12). We offer a variety of programs that may align with your corporate social responsibility pillars.
- Adopt-a-class—Help bring inspiring, life-changing experiences and science learning to curious minds. Each contribution of $1,000 provides 40 students with the opportunity to experience the joy and wonder of a Science Centre visit, as well as a special curriculum-linked program with our enthusiastic and engaging staff.
- Events—Another way to support the Centre is through third-party events—proceeds of your company-wide bake sale, golf tournament or gala can support our Centre and its programs. We can help get you started.
- Cause marketing—Donate a portion of profits from product sales or collect donations at checkout. Your customers will appreciate your company’s efforts to give back to a good cause. Cause marketing helps solidify brand loyalty, increase sales and boost employee morale.
- Experiential activations and sampling—Interact with our visitors with an on-site experiential activation or sample handouts of your products—an excellent way to launch a new product or service, build brand awareness and reignite customer interest.
