Become a patron of the Louvre

When it comes to art and culture, the Louvre is committed to sharing and exchange. That is why the museum makes it a point to reach out to all audiences - both within the museum walls and in the digital world - and place culture at the heart of society in a day and age when it needs it most. Our patrons bring much more than just financial support; they help make the Louvre’s ambitious and innovative vision a reality. Discover the many advantages of supporting our major public interest projects.

Benefit from major tax deductions

If a business is taxable in France, 60% of its donation is eligible for a tax deduction (up to 0.5% of its turnover before tax or €2M). It also enjoys material benefits valued at up to 25% of the amount of the donation (organisation of events, facilitated access to the museum, acknowledgments on Louvre communication materials, etc.). For more information, please see page in French. 

Reach a wide audience

Patrons benefit from exceptional exposure on the communication materials developed for each project supported: posters and banners, invitations to exhibition openings, press releases and kits, website features, etc. Above a certain amount, a permanent acknowledgment is made in the museum: a plaque of recognition beneath the Pyramid or in the galleries. Our partners also benefit from content for their corporate communications (annual reports, greeting cards, newsletters, intranet, etc.).

Share the advantages with your partners and clients

Enjoy facilitated access to the Louvre and VIP events:

  • invitations to exhibition openings
  • day passes for temporary exhibitions and the permanent collections
  • free access to the Louvre and Tuileries Garden for your employees
  • VIP behind-the-scene tours
  • presentations at your office by official tour guides
  • talks with curators
  • annual Louvre gala dinner in the museum

Plan a special event in our venues

Our partners can privatise a part of the Louvre, Tuileries Garden or Musée National Eugène-Delacroix. These venues – some grandiose, others more intimate – can be the magical setting for your next corporate event, morning or evening.
