Corporate Partner Circle benefits and recognition are provided for companies providing support at the $100,000 (Ruby level) and above for three consecutive years. Membership in the Academy's Corporate Partner Circle is the highest level of recognition given to a corporation by the Academy.

The Academy created a special Corporate Partner logo and Corporate Partner Circle logo, which companies may utilize within certain constraints.


The Academy restricts the usage of its logo and restricts recognizing support via a product name. The Academy wishes to avoid a perceived endorsement. Additional restrictions with relation to supporting the Academy may apply.
