Beethoven-Haus Bonn


Contribution for sponsorship

The responsible body for the Beethoven-Haus is a member-based association with democratic principles that was founded in 1889. Anybody can join it, and currently it has more than 700 members. In 1999 the Beethoven-Haus Foundation was added. Its mission is to support the activities of the Beethoven-Haus in the long run–with funds and ideas. On the occasion of the association's 125th founding anniversary in 2014, the Beethoven-Haus Foundation established the so-called "Friends and patrons of the Beethoven-Haus". So, there are two ways to actively support the Beethoven-Haus: as a member of the association or as a member of the friends and patrons group.

Friends and patrons of the Foundation Beethoven-Haus Bonn

The friends and patrons group of the Foundation Beethoven-Haus is open for anyone interested in supporting the activities of the Beethoven-Haus without officially joining the association. This is a good option for businesses that cannot join any associations due to their compliance policies or for individuals living far away or abroad and who therefore cannot or do not wish to partake in the association's many activities. Friends and patrons of the Beethoven-Haus receive the same information and offers as association members. However, they may not attend the annual members' reunion.

If you wish, you may support the friends and patrons of the Beethoven-Haus by making a monetary donation or donation in kind:
  • As a contributor with a one-off financial contribution or donation in kind.
  • As a sponsor with an annual donation.
  • As a patron with a large donation.
  • As a founder with a contribution to the basic assets of the foundation.
