Leave a legacy to Foam

A bequest was at the root of how Foam was founded. Art collector and dealer Carel Joseph Fodor donated his collection and house to the municipality after his death in 1860, provided they remain accessible to the public.

The collection is now divided among other museums, but the house on the Keizersgracht - now home to Foam - is still open to art lovers. With a planned gift, you follow in the footsteps of Fodor by helping us keep this unique place open for future generations. By means of a legacy to Foam, you will immediately reinforce the museum and offer next generations of photography lovers the opportunity to deepen their knowledge of photography. All donations, large and small, contribute to this.

You can include Foam in your will in different ways and also choose which part of the legacy you want to leave:

  • An inheritance means that you name Foam as heir. With this, you give Foam, and any other heirs, the right to inheritance that is distributed according to the provisions in the will. You can also donate a part of the legacy to Foam, for example 1 / 50th part.
  • A bequest means that you record in the will that Foam receives a certain amount or real estate (for example, a house).
  • A commemorative fund can be set up from € 50,000 and has a specific objective.
    We will be happy to discuss your wishes and the various possibilities.

Of course it is also possible to set up a commemorative fund or support a project in memory of a loved one.

The Tax Administration has designated Foam as ANBI, a public benefit organisation, and therefore exempt from inheritance tax. This means that a legacy to Foam will benefit the museum completely. The RSIN or fiscal number of Stichting Fotografie Museum Amsterdam is 810303267.

We would like to know, so we can thank you and involve you at Foam.

Foam is supported by the VriendenLoterij, De Brauw Blackstone Westbroek, Gemeente Amsterdam and the VandenEnde Foundation.

In 2021 Foam receives additional support from Kickstart Cultuurfonds and the Mondriaan Fund.
