Corporate / Foundation Partnerships
Why partner with The Kennedy Center?
The success of The Kennedy Center depends upon building and maintaining positive relationships throughout the community. By partnering with us, corporations can make a real difference in the lives of the many children and adults with disabilities and their families who are part of our community. People with disabilities are not the only ones that will benefit from your company’s involvement – your support can boost company morale, promote team building, strengthen your company’s image and more!
