Creating nearly 250 free public programs on an annual basis is no easy feat. Top-notch staff need to coordinate logistics and planning, then seek out musicians, community and cultural partners, artists, and more. But even before that, it takes philanthropic partners to make it all possible. With so many programs throughout the year, Navy Pier creates multiple engagement opportunities for donors and partners of all types.
The generosity of individuals, foundations, and corporations helps Navy Pier present its one-of-a-kind programs. Without the support of generous funders and individuals alike, the Pier would not be able to deliver the dynamic and eclectic experiences you know and love. Partners have ranged from individuals like you, who provide contributions on Giving Tuesday or at events like Cheer at the Pier, to national corporations such as Xfinity, Allstate, and Lifeway, to local partners including the Polk Bros. Foundation and the IBEW Local 134.
