Build with us!
Today, we are breaking new ground by building the world’s first and only public depot that will make an entire collection accessible to the public and safe for future generations. In 2020, the new 40 metre high Depot Boijmans Van Beuningen building will open right next to the museum. The urgent responsibility to safeguard the collection from unsafe depots, gives us the unique opportunity to create something entirely novel, in true Rotterdam spirit.
€ 22,2 million (69%) has already been donated
The funding plan for Depot Boijmans Van Beuningen includes a combination of public and private support. We raised enough money to break ground. Now we’re looking ahead to completing our $32 million private fundraising goal. Thanks to generous leadership support, foremost by Stichting De Verre Bergen, we have raised $22.2 million to-date – 69% of our goal. Our top two funding priorities are $10 million to create a transformative public experience and $5 million for endowment funding to support collection care, education programs and art purchases.
