Granting and bequeathing
Support the museum as an individual or as a company
Our museum is almost 200 years old. However, the roots of the collection go even deeper. The core of our collection consists of the paintings that King William I inherited from his father, Stadtholder William V. The king donated those paintings to the new State of the Netherlands at the beginning of the 19th century. They formed the foundation for our collection. Since then, many collectors have contributed to the expansion of our collection by means of donations and bequests.
Our activities benefit from every donation, no matter how large or small. A multitude of uses can be imagined in order to suitably utilise your gift. There are also attractive fiscal opportunities which we will be happy to discuss with you. If you would like to make a donation, please do so via the ‘Donate from the Netherlands’ page on this website.
Unfortunately, due to the restrictive Corona measures, we are currently unable to accommodate quite as many visitors as in the past. This has resulted in a loss of important income. You can support us during this period by becoming a Friend or by making a donation. You can also transfer a one-off deposit via NL02 ABNA 0516425129 in the name of the Stichting Koninklijk Kabinet van Schilderijen Mauritshuis. Our big thanks in advance!
