Patrons’ funds

Some patrons wish to contribute to safeguarding our heritage by creating within the Foundation, a fund with a specific objective. The Foundation is extremely grateful to them for this. Thanks to such patrons, activities in support of our heritage can take place on a larger scale, in fields such as architecture, natural and moveable heritage (of all periods), music and archaeology. Such funds may even complement or strengthen each other through their activities.

Each fund chooses its own objective. Some funds decide to manage a collection, whilst others launch project calls or award prizes. They may also support research, enrich a public collection, manage an estate or a nature reserve or restore significant testimonies of our heritage. All, however, are created within the framework of preserving our heritage and encouraging structured support and a long-term vision. The Heritage Fund oversees the realization of such initiatives and optimizes the operations of the various funds.
