The foundation's missions:
To ensure the Estate's sustainability, in accordance with the Duke of Aumale' legacy, guaranteeing an economic and environmental sustainable development;
to impose the Chantilly Estate as a reference in the world cultural landscape;
to become a model in terms of audience satisfaction, heritage restoration, sustainable development and partnership;
to seek excellency in all implemented strategies and actions;
to impose a new dynamic in the management of the Estate.
Significant improvements of the public areas:
opening of new venues in the château;
opening of gardens and visits of the park; organised tours
Entertaining activities, visits, tours and guides adapted to all types of audience (art lovers, young people, disabled people, people on low incomes etc. )
The priority: restoring the heritage
The priority is to restore both the park and its buidings as they play a unifying role within the estate. Being the cultural wealth hub of the domain, this area can host varied types of audience and activities.
To enable a better access of the audience and to improve the quality of the visits (display of the art works, inner decors, as well as the preservation requirements ensured by the heritage officers), the restoration process has been accelerated.
In 2009, a consistent restoration campaign has begun at the Great Stables: renovation of the Dome, the Nave, the stalls, the windows, the Courtyard's Shed aiming at setting the future Horse Museum (2014).
Over the 2007-2009 period, projected investments reached more than 20 millions of euros. The funding are provided by the Foundation and its public institutional partners - Institute of France, State, Regional Council of Picardie, General Council of Oise, as well as private donors/sponsorship (Friends of the Condé Musuem, BNP Paribas Foundation, Salmson, Veolia Environment, World Monuments Fund, Institute Randstad, etc).
