Support Fotomuseum

Fotomuseum is unusual in that it raises about two thirds of its own financing, the remainder coming from public subsidies. It would not exist without the dedicated support of its Friends’ Association, its corporate sponsors and the many foundations that fund different aspects of the museum’s activities. Our financial structure enables us to work dynamically and creatively, allowing us to respond quickly to one of the most fast-moving arenas of contemporary culture. We are immensely grateful to those who have supported our activities over the years.

Fotomuseum needs constantly to secure new sources of funding in order to maintain the level and quality of its work. We appeal to you as an individual, as a company, or as a foundation to consider supporting us and to accompany Fotomuseum into the future.

And the many foundations who wish not to be mentioned.


Fotomuseum has a highly active Friends’ Association which offers different levels of individual participation.

We also welcome direct support from individuals in support of specific projects. Perhaps you would like to help fund a catalogue, an exhibition, or an acquisition? Perhaps you are able to support a curatorial position or internship for a specific time? Or perhaps you would like to help sustain Fotomuseum’s vital research programme? All donations make a difference, however large or small.

Fotomuseum also occasionally receives legacies, allowing us to enrich the lives of future generations. If the museum has inspired you, perhaps you would consider leaving us a gift in your will?

Grants from trusts and foundations are vital to Fotomuseum, underpinning our exhibitions, acquisitions, infrastructure projects and educational programmes.

Fotomuseum is grateful to all the trusts and foundations that have funded our work in the past and continue to support our activities today. Without their vision and investment many of the Museum’s creative achievements would not have been possible.
