Ever since the project launched back in 1969, numerous private citizens, companies and institutions have contributed to the successful development of the Museo Escolar de Puçol Project, helping to achieve the foundational objectives of conserving the legacy of previous generations. The project relies on support from volunteers who appreciate and value the Museum as everyone's heritage. They help in different ways, such as providing financial support by organising exhibitions, workshops, courses and conferences, or by editing its publications.
The Centro de Cultura Tradicional Museo Escolar de Puçol offers individuals and companies two ways of sponsoring the project. The Museum has five levels of participation to meet different needs, each with specific associated benefits:
The interested party must register and then pay the selected annual amount. These contributions are 75% deductible for income tax (the first €150). In exchange for their financial help, Friends of the Museum enjoy the benefits listed below:
The Benefactor and Honourable Members have a priority, exclusive relationship with the Museum, and they are mentioned on the website and in sponsored areas of the museum.Become a member
Donations of items, such as utensils, machinery, books, works of art, furniture, etc., are essential to the Museo Escolar de Puçol, since the exhibition is made up of donated items. The Association now has more than 70,000 pieces, some on display to the public, and others stored in the warehouses.
From exceptional donations from historic shops and businesses in the city of Elche, to gifts of personal items belonging to special people in Elche society, such as Aureliano Ibarra and Lola Puntes. Anything significant to its owner is also important to the museum, which welcomes all types of donations.
Donations are received by staff at the main entrance to the Museum. First of all, donors fill in a form with their personal data, which gives written consent for the donated object to become part of the museum funds. Once the document has been signed, and contains the donor’s DNI, the donor becomes part of the donor database, which has more than 1600 entries at the moment. The donation is then catalogued, restored and photographed.
At the end of 2016, a group of entrepreneurs from Elche undertook the task of creating a foundation that would protect the Pedagogical Project, whose main purpose is to safeguard the culture of the Elche people and its dissemination through education. The patrons of this new institution called Fundación Proyecto Puçol for Education Fernando García Fontanet have been for a year looking for sponsors among the people of Elche interested in the protection of the traditions and customs of Elche, thus becoming foundational partners.
