The International Youth Library is institutionally funded in varying proportions by the German Federal Ministry for Families, Seniors, Women and Youth, the Bavarian State Ministry for Science and the Arts, and the Cultural Department of the Munich City Council. For many years, the Federal Foreign Office has funded the Library’s scholarship program for foreign researchers.
In addition, institutions, charitable trust foundations, publishing houses, and private sponsors contribute to the maintenance and expansion of the library with monetary grants, book donations, and gifts. Private sponsors also have the opportunity to regularly contribute to the Library’s work by becoming members of the official Society of Friends and Sponsors of the International Youth Library.
