Sponsorships


Why be a sponsor?

Sponsor and Community Partner support allows us to expand our program offerings and make our museum a place for young and old to learn and explore. As a volunteer-run 501(c)(3)organization, we depend on your support!

“Taking part in the Historical Society was a no-brainer for our senior community – our residents truly enjoy their services and how they promote the history of the area they grew up in.”

-Brad Jahner, Executive Director, Townehall Place of West Bloomfield
