Our Partners & Sponsors

Partnerships are the magic ingredient that make a good organization great. When we work together, we can increase our impact and help GAHF do more by spreading the word about four centuries of German American history, educating the next generation about the great contributions that German-speaking immigrants have made to the history and progress of the United States, and by instilling a sense of belonging and community.

We thank our loyal partners and sponsors for their generous support to GAHF, which has enabled activities, events, and programs both at the GAHM and elsewhere. We are proud to collaborate with a wide range of organizations on a variety of projects.

If you have questions about sponsorship opportunities or are interested in providing funding for a named scholarship, please contact Katja Sipple at [email protected] or call 202.467.5000. We also offer banner ads and advertising options in our newsletter “The Ambassador”.
