Would Mondriaan have become Mondriaan without his stay at the Rijksakademie? And what about Berlage, Breitner or Appel? For over 150 years, the Rijksakademie has played an essential role in the career development of artists who, to this day, enrich our lives and societies. Join us in supporting a new generation of artists and contribute to our future heritage.

Every contribution counts. You can either donate any amount that suits you, or join our Circle of Friends by opting for a more structural contribution. Another possibility is supporting an artist with a Fellowship or one of our special programmes or activities directly. We warmly welcome wills and bequests and also launched a special artists-for-artists initiative.
