Institutional Giving

Partnership opportunities for corporate, government, and foundation funders


WMF supporters attended a 50th Anniversary celebration at the Palazzo Farnese in Rome, June 2015, marking the completion of a comprehensive restoration of the Carracci Gallery. The restoration was funded by the Fondation de l’Orangerie and its donors, the Robert W. Wilson Challenge to Conserve our Heritage—in partnership with the French and Italian governments—and other generous institutional and individual supporters. WMF 50th Anniversary corporate sponsors include American Express and the Tiffany Foundation.

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.
