Donate to the CT&PM

There are three different ways to support the museum:

  1. Make a Monetary Donation

The Cincinnati Type & Print Museum is blessed to be funded by individuals and companies that share our love for printing. Please consider joining them in supporting the museum financially. You may also wish to look at our memberships.

2. Adopt an Intern

Interns are an invaluable part of the museum, and we would love to be able to pay them for their work. Our past interns have worked to catalog our collections, conducted research on the history of printing in Cincinnati, and assisted with various projects around the museum.

Your donation of $2,500 to our "Adopt an Intern" program will allow us to provide a stipend for one student, and help support their education and career goals.
