The Fund for the Protection of Cultural Property in the Event of Armed Conflict supports projects that are designed to protect cultural property in peacetime and in the event of conflicts, such as reinforcing the capacity of staff working to protect heritage, establishing and operation of ad hoc facilities, drawing up inventories, dispatching of experts and skilled personnel to help preserve and conserve damaged cultural property.

The Fund supports activities that are making a real impact on the ground. All contributions make a difference and we need the support to do more!
