Objectives

The objectives of the Foundation, as laid down in its Articles of Association, are:

a. to stimulate and subsidise the research carried out by the Leiden University Mission to the Theban Necropolis, with primary attention given to the fieldwork activities of this project, and including any research associated with the fieldwork activities of this project;

b. to bring the abovementioned research, as well as research of Ancient Egypt in general, to the attention of the donors of the Luxor Archaeological Heritage Foundation and of other interested persons;

c. to disseminate the research results of the Leiden University Mission to the Theban Necropolis and to facilitate the dissemination of said research and of research of Ancient Egypt in general.

d. In case the Leiden University Mission to the Theban Necropolis ceases to exist, the objectives of the Foundation are to stimulate and subsidise archaeological research carried out by Dutch and Flemish scientific institutes in Egypt.

Policy

In order to achieve its objectives, the Luxor Archaeological Heritage Foundation is dependent on the efforts of volunteers and on the annual (financial) support of donors.

With the help of volunteers and donors, the Luxor Archaeological Heritage Foundation develops various activities, which are intended to increase the number of donors and donations. These activities include, but are not limited to: the organisation of an annual study-day on topics related to ancient Thebes, the development and maintenance of the project website, and the dissemination of research results of the Leiden University Mission to the Theban Necropolis and of research of Ancient Egypt in general.

In addition to the annual financial support of donors, the Foundation also receives funding from various funding institutions as well as gifts, both incidental and structural in nature. In certain cases, these gifts are even tax-deductible for the contributor. The annual study-day is another source of income, as the day is also open to paying guests and as various additional fundraising activities are organised throughout the course of the day. A minor yield is generated each year by placing the income of the Foundation on a savings account.

The Foundation’s equity - all income after deduction of expenses, including the costs incurred for the organisation of the annual study-day, the hosting of the website and the dissemination of the research results to the donors of the Foundation - is at the full disposal of the research and fieldwork project of the Leiden University Mission to the Theban Necropolis. The Foundation provides funding for all aspects of that research and fieldwork project, including but not limited to labour wages, airline tickets for the expedition members, rent for the excavation house, conservation and restoration activities, the acquisition of specialist equipment, etcetera.

Remuneration

The Foundation does not uphold a remuneration policy, since none of the Board Members receive recompense and because the Foundation does not employ any personnel.
