The Corporate Partners Program
The Archives Partnership Trust was a innovative 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that supported the New York State Archives through its Corporate Partners Program.

It is good business to support the New York State Archives:

The State Archives ensures government accountability and makes available information pertaining to legislation, policy and program development, fiscal and legal issues, and elections of government.

The State Archives helps businesses by providing information on economic development, natural resources, demographics, infrastructure, property boundaries and ownership, law, preservation, and public health trends.

The State Archives ensures that New York has an educated and competent workforce with educational grants and programs that reach all state school districts, public programs for life-long learners, and training programs for government and historical records managers.

The State Archives keeps history alive by caring for and making accessible over 130 million documents of state government from the 1600's through the present.

The State Archives invests in local communities by providing services to more than 4,300 local governments, over 4,000 schools, and over 3,000 community organizations.
