Your donation, fund or bequest helps support education, digitization, restoration, research, publications, acquisitions or exhibitions at the Rijksmuseum.
Private donations and funds have also enabled the Rijksmuseum to set up a special fellowship programme that offers talented students from the Netherlands and abroad opportunities to conduct scholarly research on Dutch art and history in an unparalleled setting.
Thanks to the generous support of the Kramer-Lems Foundation, metal restorer Arie Pappot was able to begin doctoral research (RMA/UvA) in 2013 on the development of the copper and bronze industry in the seventeenth-century Netherlands.
The museum building is not only a place to see art on display, it is also a work of art in its own right. The Cuypers Tour is made possible by the Staal Family Fund.
The Rijksmuseum’s photography collection is made possible by the Manfred & Hanna Heiting Fund, the W. Cordia Family, the Paul Huf Fund, the Johan Huizinga Fund, the 1975 Fund and the Stefanie Georgina Alexa Nühn Fund.
The museum’s historic drawing school is now an education centre offering a varied programme of things to see, do and discover. Made possible in part by the Vandenbroek Foundation, the Vink Family, the Freek & Hella de Jonge Fund and the H&H Fund.
