MSI’s corporate partners play an important role in helping to transform lives through the power of science in communities across Chicago and beyond.
Why Make a Gift?
You can’t spell MSI without “industry.” Julius Rosenwald, president of Sears, Roebuck, founded MSI in 1933 with significant funding support from the Commercial Club of Chicago. Since then, the Museum has launched extraordinary blockbuster exhibits, including the U-505 Submarine, Science Storms and Future Energy Chicago. Corporations in multiple sectors have helped make the Museum of Science and Industry a Chicago icon and world-class institution. Demonstrate your company’s commitment to the communities we all serve by partnering with us.
- For information on corporate support, please contact Vanessa Lewis-Jackson at vanessa.lewis-jackson(at)msichicago.org or (773) 753-3866.

MSI Makes the Grade
A study by an international K-12 education expert found that MSI teacher courses significantly improve what teachers and their students know about science.
MSI shows its appreciation for our corporate and foundation partners with special events and experiences held throughout the year, including the Holiday Breakfast amidst the splendor of our Christmas Around the World and Holidays of Lights exhibition each December.
