The Sponsorts’ Association (Förderkreis) was founded in 2017 by culturally interested and responsible citizens in Göttingen to promote and support the development of Forum Wissen. At the interface between science and society, the Förderkreis actively supports the Forum Wissen in all its diverse forms in order to establish it as a lively meeting place for people interested in knowledge in Göttingen in the long term and to strengthen its importance beyond the region.
Since its inception, the Sponsors’ Association, together with a large number of supporters, has raised donations totalling over 200,000 euros for the Forum Wissen! Among other things, this has enabled the bright FORUM WISSEN lettering above the building, a room sponsorship and the restoration of the whale.
The aim for the future is to gain more members so that the Forum Wissen can be rediscovered again and again by future generations as a source of knowledge and inspiration. Members have preferential access to the numerous events and previews
of the Forum Wissen’s special exhibitions. You can find the association’s statutes here.
