The Fondation Gandur pour l’Art has established a philanthropy program to grant financial support towards heritage restoration or preservation projects in relation to the collections.

In order to apply, institutions interested in benefiting from this program  will be required to submit a complete dossier, including a description of the project, its relevance, a financial budget, the team responsible for the project and their areas of expertise, as well as a mention of any funding already acquired or requested. Applications should also specify the number of years over which the project is expected to last, and, if applicable, the foreseen solutions to ensure that they are sustainable.

Once the grant has been awarded, the Fondation Gandur pour l’Art reserves the right to suspend or cancel the payment of the grant if the heritage restoration or preservation activities have not been carried out within the stated timeframe, or if the facts provided in the application are no longer met (for instance, in the case of a change in the political situation, a change of project manager, a war and so on).
