Sponsorship is a great way to reach the Athenæum’s sophisticated and desirable audience, which is affluent, highly educated, and well-connected in Rhode Island. The Athenæum attracts over 60,000 visitors annually and has the support of 2,500 dues-paying members. Our weekly emails reach an audience of over 10,000.
Condé Nast Traveler recently called the Athenæum one of the most beautiful libraries in the world, and Travel + Leisure urged readers to “tap into the city’s cultural roots” at our library. Our Thursday evening programs – hailed by National Public Radio as a national model of civic engagement – regularly feature prominent writers, historians, artists, thought leaders, and intellectuals of every discipline.
Our supporters know that sponsorship is a fantastic investment, as well as a way to support the cultural community.
