The association Les Amis de La Petite Escalère was created in 2011 to help preserve and promote this exceptional garden and its collection, by organizing cultural events, conferences, exhibitions and residencies around art, landscape, and nature.
Thanks to the generous support of its members, to the financial help from the Ministère de la Culture et de la Communication (DRAC Aquitaine), from the region Aquitaine and its private partners, the association Les Amis de La Petite Escalère is able to preserve a legacy, support contemporary creation and implement innovating projects involving art, nature and health.

Become a Patron of La Petite Escalère
Associating your business’s image to that of a place of culture and creation such as LPE is showing how committed you are to the cultural and social development of a whole region.
Support the conservation of our remarkable garden, participate to the restoration of our collection, contribute to the funding of an exhibition or of an artist residency… LPE offers a great variety of projects which will allow you to design a patronage that matches your company’s image. Here are some of the ways you can support us:
Sponsor the restoration of a sculpture
After being exposed to difficult weather conditions for several years, the sculptures need to be restored and protected. Since 2012, several works have been restored thanks to the financial support of Les Amis of La Petite Escalère. Many more will come as part of a major restoration program of the collection. LPE is giving you the opportunity to take part in this project by sponsoring the restoration of a particular work. In 2015, the association is hoping to restore Otto Fried’s fountain, Esprit de la forêt, 1995.
Sponsor an event or a project at La Petite Escalère
Les Amis de La Petite Escalère organizes artists’ and writers’ residency programs, installs and displays contemporary works, offers lectures, conferences, round tables on art, nature, and landscape. The association also implements “Art, Nature and Health” projects with specific groups, school children, students, or audiences with special needs.
This is an opportunity for you to support one of these specific events and to associate your business to our creative, educational and cultural projects in a more perennial way.
Becoming Great Patron of La Petite Escalère
La Petite Escalère offers an exceptional partnership with a few patrons who support our global project for a period of three years. This partnership comes with multiple benefits and allows the association to implement a demanding, innovative and unique program.
Tax benefits and deductions for sponsors
When a business filing tax returns in France makes a donation to a non-profit organization, not only is it eligible for an income and corporation tax deduction, but it can also benefit from marketing and public relations advantages. For businesses, the tax deduction amounts to 60% of the donation. The total deduction cannot exceed 0.5% of the company’s net turnover. However, should your donation exceed the 0.5% threshold, you may file this excess amount over the next five fiscal years.
