Corporate Support Opportunities

As a privately funded, nonprofit institution, the Brooklyn Historical Society must rely on the generosity of its friends and supporters to meet the enormous cost of providing year-round programs and services to thousands of local, national and international visitors. We greatly appreciate the continuous support from our corporate sponsors as we continue with our mission. Your contributions allow us to provide low-cost educational opportunities to local school groups and families.

Become a Corporate Member
BHS' Corporate Member Program provides a vital source of operating assistance. Corporate Members help underwrite core educational programs, exhibitions and services, and help BHS to preserve and encourage the study of Brooklyn's rich 400-year past, while understanding and shaping the future of our culturally rich borough. Corporate Members also support the development of new programs and services. In turn, BHS' Corporate Membership Program is designed to help meet the marketing and social responsibility goals of corporations and professional organizations in ways that will benefit the company, its employees, the borough of Brooklyn, and the whole New York City community.

Roebling Associates ($20,000)


The Pierrepont Circle ($10,000)


Walt Whitman Fellows ($5,000)
