Saving the art world, one artwork at a time
Collecting art is more than filling the empty wall above the sofa. By buying art, collectors not only invest in artists financially, but also generate attention for new artists and new art forms. Collectors play a crucial part in the 'ecosystem' of the arts and often support artists long before they are discovered by major institutions. Young Collectors Circle activates a new generation of motivated and informed collectors to support the art sector sustainably and bottom-up.
We became ambassadors because we want to help a new generation get interested in collecting art. Martijn and Jeannette Sanders, Ambassadors since 2020
We organize (at least) four events every year, specifically for our ambassadors, including an ambassador dinner at a special location, a lunch during the Amsterdam Art or Gallery Weekend and an inspiring meeting during Art Rotterdam. Ambassadors may bring (up to 4) guests.
Ambassadors receive, in addition to four exclusive Ambassadors meetings, unlimited and priority access to all weekly Young Collectors Circle events, including studio visits to Luc Tuymans, Laure Prouvost and more. Ambassadors also have access to Young Collectors Circle Travel, Socials and Academy activities, such as art trips to New York, Turin, Warsaw and Paris.

Cultural ANBI - Tax benefit
Your support of the Ambassadors Circle (part of Foundation Art Projects Amsterdam) will give you a tax benefit, because Art Projects Amsterdam has the status of Cultural ANBI. If you commit yourself for at least 5 years to a periodic donation (e.g. through Ambassadors Circle or a gift to Stiching Art Projects), there is a fiscally attractive multiplier of 1.25. This means that your gift is 125% tax deductible.
Example calculation for an annual contribution of €500 per year:
*€500 x 40.8% = €204 is the net amount that is tax deductible
€500 - €204 = €296 is the net amount you pay on your contribution
Example calculation for a periodic contribution (minimum five years) of €500 per year:
€500 x 125% = €625
€625 x 40.8% = €255 is the net amount tax deductible
€500 - €255 = €245 is the net amount you pay on your contribution
We use the income from the Ambassadors Circle to fund our public program, introducing over 300 artists each year to a large audience of over 25,000 art lovers. Do you have questions about membership, donations or tax benefits? If so, contact Nadine van den Bosch at email@example.com.
