When you sponsor the Chicago Architecture Center, you invest in our city's future.

Serving more than 670,000 guests annually, the CAC consistently ranks among the top 10 Chicago cultural institutions. This means that when you sponsor the CAC, your benefits are twofold: not only are you connecting with our highly desirable audience, but you’re also supporting one of Chicago’s leading cultural institutions.

Today the CAC’s mission is more important than ever. We are leading a critical conversation about the role architecture and design play in Chicago’s livability. With your help, we can continue to promote a positive image of Chicago and empower people to celebrate, protect and plan for the future of our city and our communities. 

The Chicago Architecture Center offers a wide range of sponsorship opportunities – from year long programs, annual events and exhibitions as well as customized opportunities to meet your needs and budget.
