SPONSOR THE ARCHITECTURE YOU LOVE
Sponsors make the difference in supporting our mission to document, preserve, and promote Modernist residential design. For that support, we offer attractive and meaningful options at all levels of investment.
USModernist and NCModernist are two open digital archives created by Modernist Archive, Inc., a 501C3 nonprofit educational archive founded in 2009. We have been recognized with 13 local, state, and national awards for leadership in historic preservation.
NCModernist focuses on 300 architects and 2400 Modernist houses in North Carolina. USModernist focuses on 100 prominent architects and 7000 Modernist houses across America. Combined, they are the definitive online resources for Modernist residential architecture, representing over 800 gigabytes of content, including 26,000 photos and 2.7 million pages of scanned records. The detailed content is unrivaled -- causing our visitors to return again and again.
Sponsors reach an enthusiasic, design-oriented audience who love Modernist design and tend to be influential, artistic, intelligent, highly educated, affluent and well-travelled. They seek out new products, changes in lifestyle, and creative services. Many are in the market to buy, rent, build or renovate using Modernist-knowledgeable sources and professionals. Details of available sponsor opportunities are below. For assistance, contact Development Director Rebekah Laney at firstname.lastname@example.org, (865) 414-5800.
