Sponsorship Opportunities
Celebrate with us on Saturday, October 10 at 7:30 p.m. from the comfort of your own home as our Gala & Glass Auction goes virtual! It’s the National Liberty Museum’s 20th birthday, and we’re marking the occasion with an exciting live auction and unforgettable evening of fun activities.

Please join us and make a heroic impact on our community! Proceeds from the Gala support our education and outreach both at the Museum and via our new digital learning. This year we are dedicating a special portion of funds raised to the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia’s COVID-19 Relief Fund.

Over the past two decades, CHOP has partnered with NLM in many ways and has been a proud, early sponsor of our Young Heroes schools. Young Heroes is the Museum’s innovative civic leadership program empowering students to put their civics to work by launching service projects that make our world a better place.

We are honored to help raise funds for CHOP’s COVID-19 Relief Fund, and to celebrate all of the courageous heroes among us who stand up to make a difference.

Support the Next Generation of Heroes

Each school year, we send NLM educators directly into Philadelphia’s most underserved schools to teach students critical leadership skills, such as courage, integrity, responsibility, respect, and most important, empathy. We show them that they have the power through their First Amendment Rights to use these skills to make positive changes in their school and community.

Help us continue to bring this program to as many students as possible.
