Corporate Giving


Join the ranks of our illustrious Corporate Members. Giving through corporate membership in The Explorers Club allows your corporation to actively participate in exploration, to promote the ideal of exploration and scientific research, and to support young explorers who will one day be leaders in science, field research, and business.

The Explorers Club strongly values corporate participation and support for its endeavors. Many corporate sponsors make equipment and products used in the field. Since the Club’s founding, manufacturers and explorers have worked together to develop and test new equipment and technologies. Advances in gear, communications, engineering, computing, and optics all have enabled explorers to travel higher, deeper, farther, and faster than ever before. The Club welcomes sponsorship from corporations whose businesses may not relate directly to exploration but whose philosophies are synergistic with our own.

Corporate sponsors are welcome to take part in expedition planning, participate actively in exploration, become partners in the awards to students for field research, and support other programs of the Club. Corporate members have complete access to the Lowell Thomas Building (our headquarters at 46 East 70th Street) and are able to enjoy all the programs and services available to individual members.
