Louvre Endowment Fund

The Louvre Endowment Fund was established in 2009 to generate capital and produce annual income that could more fully support the exceptional artistic heritage of the museum.

At present, the Endowment Fund covers about 3 percent of the Louvre’s budget (€220 million in 2017) through the different projects it supports each year. However, the Endowment Fund of the Louvre needs more support if it is to meet its goal of becoming one of the financial pillars of the Louvre Museum.

The Fund has set an immediate target of generating €10 million in new gifts, which would provide funding for three major areas:


The care, study and display of the Louvre’s collections.
