Partners and benefactors
Our partners and benefactors are:
BankGiro Loterij is the leading Dutch cultural lottery. It supports good causes in the field of culture and the conservation of cultural heritage in the Netherlands. Since 1998, the lottery has contributed a substantial amount each year for the purchase of new works for our collection. BankGiro Loterij is also helping to fund the construction of our new entrance building.
Van Lanschot Bankiers has been collecting art since it was established in 1737. The foundations of Van Lanschot’s collection were laid down somewhat later, in the nineteenth century, with purchases made by Godfried van Lanschot and his wife. They were passionate art lovers and their acquisitions account for a significant part of the collection.
The Netherlands itself is the lynchpin of the collection, making it an important and prominent part of Dutch cultural heritage. It is on this that the collaboration is based.
Van Lanschot is supporting the construction of the new entrance and so contributing to increasing the accessibility of Vincent van Gogh’s legacy and that of his contemporaries. #
Takii Seed, is the breeder of Sunflower F1 “Sunrich Orange”, the world’s leading cut Sunflower variety.

Vincent Van Gogh’s Sunflowers paintings are among his most celebrated, and Takii Seed is well known for its Sunflowers so the project provided a perfect opportunity to work together.
