Thanks to all the donors of the campaign

Thanks to the generosity of more than 3,600 donors, the Louvre has raised over €600,000 for the reconstruction of the mastaba chapel of Akhethotep. A tremendous thank you for your outstanding participation that will give a new lease of life to this treasure of Ancient Egypt.

The Louvre is extremely grateful to the Société des Amis du Louvre, Hugau Gestion as well as the 3,600 donors of the "Tous mécènes !" campaign for the reconstruction of the mastaba chapel of Akhethotep. 

Join the Tous mécènes ! campaigns

Launched in 2010 for the acquisition of The Three Graces by Lucas Cranach, the Tous mécènes ! crowdfunding campaigns have become a major annual event. Each year, several thousand of you have contributed to the conservation or acquisition of major artworks such as the Winged Victory of Samothrace in 2013, the Breteuil Table, also known as the Teschen Table, in 2014, or Saly's Cupid in 2015. Your commitment to the Louvre is vital.

Through these campaigns, you play an active part in safeguarding and enriching our heritage. Discover the new Louvre campaign each year in October on www.tousmecenes.fr/en!
