Art needs guardian angels
Read more...Art comforts us, gives us hope, makes us think, identifies, connects and mirrors our souls. When life really matters, we often seek refuge in words, images or sounds that express precisely what we ourselves cannot find the words for.
Because of its great social importance, art should be accessible to everyone as much as possible, which is why it is often offered below cost. For this reason, governments around the world make subsidies available for arts and culture to make up for budget shortfalls - from pop festivals to opera houses. While government subsidies are essential, we do not always agree with their distribution and the demands that come with subsidies. We think things can and should be better; overall, the sector will have to move from more to better. The current system encourages unfair competition, there seems to be little room for a new generation of musicians, the diversity and inclusion requirements are sometimes paralyzing, the artist is often the final piece of the budget, and the reliance on the vision and quality of the expert seems to be fading further and further into the background. Thus the official instead of the artist determines what happens on stage.
Performing Baroque music at the highest level for the audiences of today and tomorrow is our mission. But how can PRJCT Amsterdam achieve this goal without being too restricted in its artistic freedom? In recent years we have already shown that it can be done differently. With Maarten Engeltjes as our figurehead, we attract full theaters, an increasingly younger audience and get rave reviews. All thanks to an imaginative programming that was created in freedom.
However, without supplementing the deficits in our budget, we cannot ensure a solid foundation for our organization and growth at home and abroad. For this reason, we need private donors (guardian angels) who support our mission and protect our values. Support us, become an Angel!
Our guardian angels:

Do you really want to leave something beautiful to the world?
PRJCT Amsterdam offers the opportunity to have your favorite baroque aria or melodies immortalized through audio and video recording. You can also include PRJCT Amsterdam in your will in the form of a bequest. Please contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
PRJCT Amsterdam Foundation has been designated as cultural ANBI. This means you can deduct your donation with additional tax benefits when the annual contribution is established through a 5-year periodic gift deed.
For example: with a periodic Angel donation of € 1000 you save in the highest tax bracket 1000 x 1.25 x 0.52 = € 650. A contribution to PRJCT Amsterdam then actually "costs" only € 350. For companies, the contribution is even 150% deductible. Calculate here Your own tax benefit from a cultural donation.
In addition, committing your contribution through a periodic donation deed also helps PRJCT Amsterdam as an organization. Committing structural support funds for 5 years gives the ensemble a better and reliable financial perspective for the coming years, on which to focus policy and secure the growth of PRJCT Amsterdam.
