Sponsor the Kentucky Derby Museum
The Kentucky Derby Museum has welcomed over 1.5 million visitors from all over the world and has reached over 120,000 children with our educational programs. Our mission is to engage, educate and excite everyone about the extraordinary experience that is the Kentucky Derby; one of America’s most familiar and enduring cultural events in Thoroughbred racing.
Our mission is accomplished through:
- Programs built for adults and children
- Temporary exhibits
- Permanent exhibits

All of these activities would not be possible without the sponsorship support of corporations and organizations.
Sponsors support the Museum through in-kind and cash contributions ranging from garden planning and maintenance to funding for permanent exhibits.
