Partnership opportunities for corporate, government, and foundation funders
The work we do around the world is made possible by a wide range of supporters including foundations, corporations, and government bodies. The visionary commitment of these institutional donors has facilitated pioneering partnerships between World Monuments Fund and diverse collaborators, enabling cultural heritage to be preserved across a broad spectrum of communities worldwide.
We gratefully acknowledge the contributions of institutional donors and sponsors, whose support has made possible a major part of WMF’s success since our founding in 1965.
Working inclusively, we develop conservation plans that are in keeping with the best interests of the sites and the communities around them. Institutional partners enjoy the benefits of a sustained collaboration that supports their goals, while strengthening the quality of life in local communities, building local capacity, and supporting local economies.
We invite prospective institutional partners to contact us to explore how a partnership will help achieve your own institutional goals.
