Corporate Giving

Connecting your business and employees with the innovation and creativity of contemporary art.

We work with our corporate partners to develop a mutually beneficial relationship that meets your business goals while fostering an enjoyment of contemporary art in Kansas City. Corporate donors enjoy premiere marketing to a significant audience, access to the collection, membership discounts for your employees, and an extraordinary facility for hosting private events.

We invite you to join our community of corporate donors and support the growth and vitality of contemporary art in Kansas City by getting involved with one of our programs.


With a premiere sponsorship your company can direct its charitable giving. Be in front of the Museum's saavy audience, focus your marketing message or reinforce your company's community outreach.

Your company will receive recognition on-site and in print alongside publicity related to the sponsorship. Sponsor packages can be tailored to best fit the objectives of your business while funding an important need at the Museum. Contact us for details on these sponsorship opportunities, or to discuss one that is right for you.

Gifts of Stock

Stock gifts are an easy way to make a contribution to the Kemper Museum. Your stock distribution can be applied toward membership, the annual fund, or donor-designated gift.

Major Donors

Our ability to be one Museum with three, free locations is in large part due to the commitment of major donors. Kemper Museum has been fortunate to count on several generous and dedicated friends throughout its 16-year history.

Major donors provide essential funds for operations, maintenance, acquisition of artwork and the general support needed to be Kansas City’s premiere contemporary art museum.

Art Acquisition

A designated contribution for the purpose of art acquisition enables the Museum to expand our permanent collection – the foundation of everything we do. Contact us to meet with the Museum Director about how you can direct your gift for art acquisition.
