Because of economic constraints, French museums are trying out different methods of obtaining much needed funds. They’re now relying on art connoisseurs.
For instance, the Pantheon in Paris needs to be restored. You can contribute to that cause here. Or maybe you’d like to help the Louvre buy a pair of 13th century sculptures. There’s more to it than the cause. These institutions are also offering rewards to those who contribute, such as invitations to certain events.
