Sponsorships

The Gilmore Car Museum – America’s Signature Collection is developing an essential base of financial support from Members, Donors, Grant Makers and Sponsors who value the Museum’s mission and diverse educational activities.

The Museum is increasingly well positioned to provide corporate sponsors beneficial identification with exhibits, events and programs and access to audiences focused on the social, artistic and engineering impact of the automobile on America. Sponsorship provides an excellent opportunity and setting to showcase a company’s brand, products and social responsibility through a broad based promotional package to diverse and affluent demographic groups. Exposure is multidimensional; visitors, events, publications, e-mail and the web.

Our primary audiences include:

  • Car collectors – Collectors form a very large enthusiast group that is well educated and possesses above average levels of disposable income.
  • Residents and Tourists – The immediate southwestern Michigan market, comprised of the nine counties surrounding the Museum, is home to 1.5 million people. The broader southwestern Michigan region, within which the Museum is centrally located, is home to over 2.2 million people and attracts over 21 million tourists annually. The Museum’s annual attendance has been growing at a rate of approximately 30% annually and is expected to exceed 125,000 by 2015.
  • Automobile Industry – Some of the most important marques and clubs in the automobile industry are involved with the Museum. Current on-site partners include the Classic Car Club of America Museum, Pierce Arrow Museum, Franklin Collection, Cadillac-LaSalle Club Museum, Model A Ford Museum, Lincoln Motor Car Museum, Tucker Historical Collection and Checkers Motors Archive. Opportunities to further expand are continually being evaluated.
  • Educational and Community – The Museum offers an extensive menu of educational programing for both in-school and in-Museum presentations. School groups are admitted to the Museum without charge. The Museum’s after school program for at-risk youth, Gilmore Garage Works, has become a national model for using one on one mentoring with hands on automotive restoration projects to both educate and motivate participants to continue their education and develop social as well as employment skills.

If you are interested in raising awareness of your company and its products and services with these audiences as well as creating a meaningful relationship with the premier automotive heritage museum in North American, please contact our Executive Director, Michael Spezia at 269-671-5089, Ext. 11 or mspezia@GilmoreCarMuseum.org.
