The purpose of the fund is that donations will not be directly spent on the needs of the museum, but used to create a fund that cannot be accessed. The fund itself is management by a management company which invests the money and from this receives a stable income which can be spent on financing museum projects.

The State Hermitage Museum transferred management to Gazprombank–Share Management in March 2012, so that the management company effectively invested the resources received by the State Hermitage Museum from donations so that it will have the financial means to solve relevant problems and implement bold projects. The specific solutions which will be implemented as a result of the first income from the endowment in a year’s time will be taken by the Board of Trustees of the fund.
