The Hartman Center depends upon the generosity of individual and corporate benefactors for financial support. Most of its holdings have been received as gifts or acquired with support from donors. Its staff welcomes inquiries from individuals or organizations interested in contributing to the Center's holdings or supporting its programs in other ways.

Since the arrival of the JWT Archives at Duke University in 1987 and the subsequent founding of the Hartman Center 5 years later, the Center has grown by leaps and bounds, with the addition of new collections and staff, as well as increased researcher interest. In 1992, Duke alumnus John W. Hartman committed funding that made the vision of a center dedicated to documenting advertising, sales, and marketing into a reality. Building on these achievements, we have ambitious goals for acquiring new collections and promoting their use in a digital environment, all of which creates ongoing ways for donors to be a lasting part of the Hartman Center.
To recognize leadership gifts that help the Hartman Center achieve its goals and fulfill its mission, the Center will name programs (including travel grants and fellowships for researchers), graduate student internships, and staff positions in honor of corporate or individual donors or persons they wish to honor. Possibilities can be tailored to JWT and outdoor advertising themes as well. To discuss these naming opportunities, contact Hartman Center Director Jacqueline Reid Wachholz at 919-660-5836 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
