Sponsor an Event

The USS Hornet Museum is a nonprofit organization that relies on a variety of funding sources for its exhibits and programs. The Museum is not supported in any way by regular grants from city, county, state or federal sources. Although some of our costs are covered by revenue generating activities, sponsorships are required to assist with exhibit development, education programs, and to keep prices affordable for families.

Sponsor an Exhibit

Help our museum introduce new exhibits or upgrade existing ones. Much of what we have were created by the dedication and donations of our staff and volunteers. However, our funds and resources are limited, which slows down what we hope to accomplish in our mission: to honor, educate, and inspire children and the general public. Custom sponsorships are available.

Sponsorship Benefits

The USS Hornet Museum can provide various promotional opportunities for companies who would like to partner with us on our special events.


We promote our events throughout Northern California via print, radio, television, web media, and communications to the members of all participating organizations. Events are also promoted nationally through several key publications.

Get Listed

Sponsors can have their companies listed on various collateral including posters, flyers, mailers, and event programs. To help drive traffic to our partners’ websites, hyperlinks can be posted on the Hornet website and in our electronic newsletter.


The ship provides a great platform for displaying company banners. Sponsors may also be invited to set up informational booths on the hangar deck of the ship or on the pier.
