Sponsorship schemes

In order to rebuild the Berlin palace in the twenty-first century and tranform it into the Humboldt Forum, we need you to join our small circle of benefactors.

Only if we come together to ensure the success of the Humboldt Forum and become active as individuals will we truly succeed in giving the Humboldt Forum its wings. Your private financial support is what will enable the Humboldt Forum in the Berlin Palace to gain the independence, diversity and brilliance that can reshape this historic location as a national symbol.

The Berlin Palace used to be the most significant Baroque edifice north of the Alps, and we would like visitors to experience its full glory once more. The reconstruction of the historical facades is not included in the official construction budget – in other words, it is not financed by public funds. In our Palace Workshop in Berlin's Spandau district, the sculptors have been hard at work since 2011 on models for the decorative elements. It is a task that requires great artistic talent, for these craftspeople are mainly obliged to work from historical photographs and can only rarely draw upon small original fragments. The original plans were lost over the course of the centuries. You can help us ensure that these ornamental elements are completed with your donation!

Your support of the Humboldt Forum reflects the kind of social commitment that forges a special bond between you and the team behind the planning and construction of the Humboldt Forum in the Berlin Palace. Consequently, we would very much like to involve you as our sponsor – and your family too, if you like – in the development of the Humboldt Forum.

If we have succeeded in arousing your curiosity, please feel free to contact us. Together we can find a sponsorship scheme that best fits your needs. We would be delighted to offer our advice.
