Support the Vaisseau

Support us by becoming a sponsor or partner of the Vaisseau!

Become a patron of the Vaisseau and work for the transmission of science to young people!

Develop your project with us and make this partnership a key feature of your corporate policy and strategy. Enhance the image of your company among your clients, partners and teams by showing your commitment to culture. Choose which project you would like to support: renewing a permanent or temporary exhibition, developing our cultural programme or showcasing our educational garden. There are lots of ways you can choose to get involved!

Why become a patron?

By becoming a sponsor or partner, you will help to develop exhibitions designed for 3-to-12 year-old children which encourage them to learn through play. Through interaction, children have a go, try something out, see if it works and start over, without being assessed or graded. Such freedom fosters their creativity and development to enjoy learning, while having fun! You'll also have opportunities to help organise regular outreach events to communicate the joys of science to children of all ages.

A tax benefit for your company

For any charitable sponsorship initiative, your company benefits from a 60% reduction in corporation tax on the donation amount.
