ACQUISITIONS & DONATIONS

The Centre Pompidou Foundation is an American-based not-for-profit dedicated to supporting the Centre Pompidou in Paris. The Foundation’s mission is to acquire and encourage works of American art and design for loan or gift to the Centre Pompidou for its permanent collection. Over $50 million have been raised and over 450 works have been acquired by the Foundation for the Centre Pompidou thanks to the efforts of a group of donors and collectors.

The Foundation fosters connoisseurship and a dynamic exchange of ideas through special events, exhibitions, and trips for art lovers that offer unprecedented access to artists, private collections, modern and contemporary architectural treasures, and world-class museums in the company of Centre Pompidou curators of modern and contemporary art, architecture and design.
