The Stedelijk Museum Fonds seeks to establish fruitful partnerships with a dedicated group of private benefactors wishing to provide the museum with substantial, long-term support so the Stedelijk can invest in its future. You are warmly invited to join the foundation in providing the Stedelijk with the resources to develop its ambitions and make the Stedelijk Museum an international “must see.”


The aim of the Stedelijk Museum Fonds is to expand, conserve and present its collection, engage in research, deliver educational programs, and stage exhibitions.

The Stedelijk Museum has an independent support fund, the Stedelijk Museum Fonds, with which we seek to establish fruitful partnerships with private benefactors wishing to provide the museum with substantial, long-term support. The Stedelijk Museum Fonds has an independent and unsalaried Executive Board that decides over the allocation of the funds entrusted to it, for which the Board of Directors of the museum is required to file a request.


Named Fund

You can create a Named Fund with a minimum gift of € 100.000. As founder, you also choose the name and purpose of the fund. We look forward to discussing how you can support the museum, in a way that honours your vision and your legacy.

Estate Planning

You can help the museum realise its strategic vision after your lifetime through a bequest or legacy. You can also include arrangements in your will for the creation of a Named Fund. If you intend to include such a clause as part of your estate, you are welcome to share your plans with us at any time.

Donating Art

You may be considering donating a work of art to the museum to enrich the collection of the Stedelijk. In some cases, a portion of inheritance tax can be paid through the donation of artwork to a charitable institution. We look forward to discussing options with you.

Periodic gifts


If you decide to support the museum for a minimum of five years, you are invited to join the Curator Circle or the International Collector Circle. Multi-annual support offers the museum certainty for a longer term.
