The museum is supported by corporate patronage.

The 2003 law on patronage changed the conditions for private companies to assist public institutions. In addition to the benefits in terms of visibility and image, the new provisions allow the company to reduce 60% of the expenses incurred from its corporate tax. The museum’s various activities offer companies the opportunity to support initiatives with which they identify: acquisition of collections, restoration of artworks, exhibitions, cultural and educational activities, facilities and events for the disabled public, etc.

Le musée est soutenu par le mécénat d’entreprises.

La loi de 2003 relative au mécénat a changé les conditions d’aide des entreprises privées aux institutions publiques. Outre les avantages en termes de notoriété et d’image, les nouvelles dispositions permettent à l’entreprise de réduire de son impôt sur les sociétés 60 % des dépenses effectuées. Les multiples activités du musée offrent aux entreprises la possibilité de soutenir des actions dans lesquelles elles se reconnaissent : acquisition de collections, restauration d’œuvres, exposition, actions culturelles et pédagogiques, aménagement et animations à destination du public en situation de handicap, etc.


Soutenir le musée

La société des Amis du Musée Champollion a pour but de faire connaître l’œuvre de Jean-François Champollion à travers la connaissance de l’Égypte ancienne. L’association organise régulièrement des conférences animées par des chercheurs et des experts de la civilisation égyptienne. Elle soutient également la politique d’enrichissement des collections du musée.
