You are a Corporate Donor or a Foundation

Acquiring a piece of art, helping renovate the Richelieu Library, funding cultural and digital programmes, restoring objects and documents, encouraging research and education are amongst the many projects which can align with your company or foundation’s values. 
The Corporate Sponsorship Delegation is here to answer your questions and accompany you through your sponsorship process. (information and application forms are available on demand)

You can support the BnF projects with:
Financial sponsorship 
For instance: the Louis Roederer Foundation has supported the BnF photography exhibitions for 13 years.
Skills-based sponsorship through your collaborators’ expertise    For instance: in 2015-2016, teams from Japanese company Dai Nippon Printing digitized an exceptional ensemble of 55 ancient globes in 3D
Sponsorship in kind, by providing materials and goods produced by your company. 
For instance: Saint-Gobain supplied all the glassware necessary to complete the renovation of the Glass Gallery of the Richelieu Library.
