Become a corporate patron

Your business can demonstrate its passion for the paper heritage through the Patronage Fund for Books and Literature.

Patronage fund for books and literature

The Patronage Fund for Books and Literature supports three Antwerp heritage institutions with a passion for our paper history: the Plantin-Moretus Museum, the Letterenhuis (House of Literature) and the Hendrik Conscience Heritage Library.

Together they preserve unique collections and masterpieces of world heritage – from the very first printed works to the books of today. Through the Patronage Fund for Books and Literature, these three institutions have been able to further supplement and preserve their collections.

General or project-specific patronage

Through the Patronage Fund, your business can support the running of the Plantin-Moretus Museum. There are two possible formulas:

  • General patronage for all three institutions
    • focusing on purchases and restorations
    • for support of €5,000 or more per year over a two-year period
  • Project-specific patronage for the Plantin-Moretus Museum
    • relating to specific purchases and conservation projects for the Plantin-Moretus Museum collection
    • for support of €10,000 or more

Stay informed

As a patron, you will be regularly informed about the acquisitions and restorations that have been made possible through the Patronage Fund. Naturally we will also keep you informed about the activities and benefits we offer to our patrons.
