Acknowledgements and privileges

The Louvre expresses its gratitude to donors who have contributed to the Endowment Fund with a comprehensive program of prestigious events, and by honoring them in the museum.

Donors who give to the Louvre Endowment Fund have the opportunity to get involved in the projects they support by meeting museum staff at conferences or luncheons. Supporting the Endowment Fund gives donors a chance to be part of the life of the Louvre.

Donors to the Louvre Endowment Fund benefit from a top-notch program specifically designed to express the museum’s gratitude: invitations to exhibition openings, private visits of temporary exhibitions and permanent collections, invitations to events held in the Auditorium (lectures in art history, concerts), annual cocktail in the gardens, priority access pass to the museum, exhibition catalogues, etc.

Lastly, it is with pleasure that the Louvre pays tribute to donors in the rooms of the former palace. Names may be engraved permanently on the walls of the Rotonde de Mars or exhibited for 10 to 20 years in the Pavillon de l’Horloge, the historic heart of the Louvre. For more significant contributions, a room in the museum may bear the name of a donor for up to 50 years.
