A contribution to the basic assets of the Beethoven-Haus Foundation constitutes a long-term investment. The foundation's capital is conserved and just the earnings gained with it are used to support the activity of the Beethoven-Haus. Thereby, you can help our mission year after year and even beyond your personal lifetime. For your additional contribution you are honoured by the title Founder. Furthermore, to express our gratitude, the Beethoven-Haus provides you with additional benefits that exceed the ones granted to contributors, sponsors and patrons.

Additional benefits for founders:

  • Contributions to the basic assets have several tax advantages: Up to a total of 1 million Euro is deductible.
  • Mentioning of your person on the internet and in the annual report as "Founder of the Beethoven-Haus"
  • Name engraved in the founders' board at the museum
  • Invitation to exclusive events (Beethoven Week etc.)
  • Contributions starting from 100,000 Euro are eligible for founding a named fund under the umbrella of the foundation and for being elected into the board of trustees
