Financing and Funding
The federal government and the state of Baden-Württemberg are the primary funding sources for the German Literature Archive Marbach (DLA). Beyond that, the cities of Ludwigsburg and Marbach as well as the district of Ludwigsburg belong to the generous sponsors of the DLA.
The Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), the German Research Foundation (DFG), the Federal Foreign Office (AA), the Volkswagen Foundation, the Fritz Thyssen Foundation, the Robert Bosch Stiftung and Stiftung Mercator, among others, support various projects in research and cataloguing. Significant acquisitions are made possible by the Stifterverband für die deutsche Wissenschaft, the Kulturstiftung der Länder and the Stiftung Kulturgut of the state Baden-Württemberg.
A multitude of donors and benefactors support our institution. Several of them belong to the Friends of the German Literature Archive Marbach. This supporting association, founded in 1995, has generously supported the development of the archive ever since.
