Sponsoring partners

The Cartoonmuseum Basel aims at organising regular high quality exhibitions, raising awareness for cartoons, creating learning opportunities and expanding its exquisite collection and library.

The Cartoonmuseum Basel is a private entity receiving no public subsidies. It is funded by a legally dependent foundation under the umbrella of the Christoph Merian Foundation (CMS). The CMS manages the foundation assets and supports the museum’s back office, but it does not offer any direct financial support. The running costs of the Cartoonmuseum Basel are covered by the yields on the foundation assets. Over a third of the museum’s budget is based on revenues from the sales and services of the museum and the museum shop, as well as additional special funds for exhibitions, which are being raised constantly.
One important source of such additional funds are the “Cartoon Circle” and partnerships with institutions and companies interested in supporting satirical art. Members of the “Cartoon Circle” enjoy free admission to the museum and other benefits. Sponsoring partners benefit from high visibility with a broad audience interested in a beloved art form, and from the international appeal of a popular museum that is unique in Switzerland.
