Donations and bequests

SIK-ISEA finances its research projects entirely out of contributions received from foundations, benefactors and providers of grants. A considerable proportion of our costs for the library, archives and online lexicon SIKART are also met from private sources.

Would you like to make a donation or a bequest to the Institute, or to support a particular project? The Institute’s managing director, Dr. Roger Fayet, will be happy to discuss it with you personally.

The picture sequence below illustrates a selection of projects your donation can help to make happen:
