The gift reinforcement programme

The gift reinforcement programme was introduced in 2014. The purpose of the programme is to stimulate increased private sector funding for art and culture in the form of monetary donations. Recipients of donations receive an additional gift reinforcement sum, usually 25% of the donated amount.

Processing of applications

Applications, including all required details and necessary documentation, must be submitted to the Ministry of Culture. Applications should be marked “gaveforsterkning” and be sent by email to [email protected].

Applications are processed in the order in which they are received, provided that they are complete, and gift reinforcement funds will be disbursed on an ongoing basis following processing and approval. In the event of the block grant being used in full, remaining applications will be deferred and disbursed in the following budget year. The priority order is rolled over to the next year.
