Through their contributions, a large number of cultural practitioners in the CultureBase network generate a constantly growing and renewing resource that makes information about art and culture on the internet and beyond accessible to everyone. This happens in an advertising-free space that ensures the exchange of core cultural information with the audience and the network's partners, beyond commercial interests. The kulturserver.de gGmbH foundation has been working on this comprehensive cultural data network for many years.
The financing of CultureBase is at all times a not insignificant challenge. In addition to operating the entire technical infrastructure that underpins the network, considerable funds are needed for the constant renewal and further development of the structures as well as the software. The continuous development of the network and the support of the network partners form another important area of responsibility.
Therefore, we are pleased about every member of the CultureBase network who makes a small or even larger financial contribution to support the entire network: through CultureBase maintenance, through a private or through an institutional sponsoring membership.
Since the CultureBase is used in many different ways by many different network members, CultureBase-Maintenance follows a cooperative approach. CultureBase-Maintenance addresses all members of the network in order to ensure the smooth running and thus the prerequisite for the expansion and further development of the CultureBase through their financial participation. The respective financial framework of each member is taken into account.
CultureBase-Maintenance is to be understood exclusively as a care, maintenance and upkeep contribution and not as a budget for the construction and upkeep of homepages. The contributions are used for the general servers, administration, development and further development of the tools and the helpdesk for the network. These are expenses that make long-term and efficient cooperation in the network possible in the first place.
