Fondation du Patrimoine
The Ateliers d'Art de France Foundation is overseen by the Fondation du Patrimoine (Heritage Foundation).
The state-approved Fondation du Patrimoine aims to safeguard and promote the unprotected rural natural and built heritage (houses, churches, bridges, industrial heritage, movable heritage, etc.).
In collaboration with the main players in the craft sector and the relevant state authorities, the Fondation du Patrimoine helps public and community-based owners to finance their projects, enables private owners to carry out all or some of their activities free of tax, and promotes corporate sponsorship.
