The association supported the municipality’s project in the competition launched by the departmental council (conseil général) and the prefecture:   “Sponsoring heritage projects in Lot-et-Garonne”. From among 82 submissions, 20 projects were selected by a jury of professionals. Saint Maurin’s submission was on this short-list.   

Saint Maurin’s project is to protect what still exists of the Abbey buildings, whether public or private, as swiftly as possible, by :

  • continuing the long-term programme of restoration of the buildings belonging to the commune, then for the privately-owned buildings (after having acquired ownership of them)
  • giving meaning to the site
  • encouraging communication about the heritage
  • making the site accessible to all disabled people.

To meet these objectives, three stages have been identified :

  • the preservation of the built heritage
  • the development of a stopping point on the Cluniac route
  • the development of a comprehensive cultural project.

What are the benefits for sponsors ?

  • increased prestige and self-worth
  • building of public and professional relationships
  • internal communication
  • tax exemption for money paid to the association.
