The Museum Boijmans van Beuningen Foundation, founded in 1939 by harbour barons D.G. van Beuningen and W. van der Vorm in cooperation with the director D. Hannema, aims at supporting the general interests of the museum. It achieves this by, for example, acquiring art works at the request of the museum, issuing publications such as the Boijmans Agenda, but also by promoting visits to the museum and recruiting corporate friends for Boijmans Business Club and Boijmans Corporate Members.
In 2014 the foundation celebrated her 75th anniversary. Watch this short ARTtube movie on the creation of the museum collection and the role of the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen Foundation.
