Established with Charitable Status (Gemeinnuetzigkeit) in Vaduz, Liechtenstein on 24 August 1987 with the belief that, after all, our greatest legacy to future generations is art, the International Music and Art Foundation makes Donations to facilitate the improvement and dissemination of the visual and performing arts, as well as the study and preservation of art and culture from the past. “Preservation” includes the conservation and restoration of individual works of art and architecture as well as cultural and environmental documentation and preservation. Specific interests of the Foundation include, but are not limited to, the fine arts (painting, drawing, sculpture), music, theatre, and architecture (“frozen music” Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, 1829).


The International Music and Art Foundation does not make Donations to individuals, only to recognized and established organizations:

  • in the performing arts such as opera companies, symphony orchestras, chamber music ensembles, ballet and theater companies, etc.;
  • for architectural restorations and for the conservation of art;
  • to museums;
  • for research and publication on the history of art;
