Business Affiliates Membership Program

Connecting Companies to the Natural World

Become a Corporate Sponsor Today.

Our Business Affiliates Membership program gives your company the opportunity to engage with us as a trusted community partner and a chance to get involved while giving back to the community.

Your company can join with other distinguished organizations, large and small, whose commitment to the Stamford Museum & Nature Center supports our mission to bring the wonders of art, nature, astronomy, and environmental education to our community and the surrounding region.

By aligning with us, you’ll receive exclusive corporate sponsor benefits designed to raise your profile and bolster your business, while getting your employees and their families involved with the SM&NC, and outdoors in a healthy, fun and educational environment.

For more information about our Business Affiliates Membership program, please contact Karen Meizels at 203.977.6546 or

Our visitors are your customers.

Local roots matter. We value your partnership and are committed to nurturing relationships by aligning your brand with our mission, audience, events, and programs. Our corporate sponsors know we care about their businesses and create great events for client entertaining.

Philanthropy will always set you apart.

Be recognized in the community as a charitable leader whose actions reflect your corporate culture and values.
You’ll be actively supporting an organization that serves an intergenerational audience of over 200,000 annually, and promotes environmental stewardship and STEAM education programs for 30,000 area school children, 30% of whom are from Title 1 schools.
