The interest aroused by the restoration and the variety of activities fostered by the Santa María Cathedral Foundation have been the driving force behind the recovery of pride in Old Cathedral. To involve citizens directly, the Foundation manages the Circle of Founders, a programme that enables individuals and companies to become small-scale sponsors of restoration tasks and cultural activities.

Membership in the Circle provides advantages in activities related to the restoration of the Cathedral, preference in events and conferences, free access to guided tours and discounts for members’ companions, discounts at the cathedral shop, a 20% tax deduction on the amounts paid and the satisfaction of participating in what has become an integrating and symbolic project for citizens.

There are two minimum annual contributions: 50 or 100 euros.
