The Mansart Foundation was created to preserve and promote French heritage. It is particularly active today on the sites of the Chateau de Maintenon, in the Centre-Val de Loire region, and the Chateau de Bagatelle, in the heart of the bois de Boulogne, in Paris. The Foundation is also supporting the Friends of the Centre Pompidou.

The Mansart Foundation manages a large collection of archives and works of art, which are regularly presented to a large audience every year.

Our commitment to the national interest and public service was recognized by the French State in 2005, when the Foundation was granted the status of Fondation Reconnue d'Utilité Publique, with the mission of preserving and bringing to life heritage of great interest, whether natural, historical or contemporary.

In 2023, we are celebrating the 40th anniversary of the creation of the Foundation.

With your help, we can protect unique treasures of our heritage as well as their natural environment, and make them accessible to everyone today and tomorrow.

Our Foundation, recognized for its public mission, thanks you for your support. Recent events have highlighted how much we all need to reconnect with our beautiful heritage, be it natural, cultural, or historical. Your donation today will help keep this heritage alive and open to everyone.
