Community Partners - Business Memberships

Abbe : Support : Community Partners - Business Memberships

As Maine’s first and only Smithsonian Affiliate, the Abbe has spent close to a century sponsoring research, preserving precious collections, and teaching generations of learners about the Wabanaki people. A robust cultural institution and destination, the Abbe Museum positively influences Mount Desert Island’s reputation, job growth, and quality of life, which helps develop and sustain a vibrant economy.


Being a Community Partner publicly demonstrates your company’s commitment to Maine’s cultural heritage and tribal economies. Your support isn't affecting just the Museum. We work closely with Native communities in Maine, northern New England, and eastern Canada to produce award-winning exhibits, educational programs for students, teachers, and Museum visitors, and collaborative projects. Native people lead programs, serve on our board of trustees, and are staff members.


Additionally, partnering with the Abbe offers many benefits, including:

  • Enhancing your brand by aligning with Maine’s first and only Smithsonian Affiliate dedicated to inspiring new learning about the Wabanaki Nations.
  • Connecting business-minded individuals at exhibition openings, special events, and Community Partner Brunches.

  • Engaging your employees and their families through events and exhibit openings.

  • Year-round recognition of your annual support on interior museum signage.
