People shape history. That is one of the central messages NPG brings to life. Corporate partners can help the museum fill a major void by using portraiture to teach history. With “Teachers, Teens, and Access” as a guide, the Portrait Gallery reaches students, teachers, families, and community members onsite, online, and on the road. Sponsors provide critical funding for school programs, family series, adult learning initiatives, and technology development. Click here to explore NPG’s education programs further.
The National Portrait Gallery is home to some of the most vibrant pioneers, performers, and patriots of our nation, captured in portraits by some of the most celebrated artists in history. Corporate gifts to the Acquisitions Fund provide vital funding for ongoing acquisitions, or can be designated to specific works of art.
