|German term or phrase: Förderverein|
I am looking for a way to translate "Förderverein". It appears in an article about a museum for modern art.
I thought of "supporting association" but that has 'translation' written all over it. Does any of the English speakers know the magic word?
Tnx in advance!
In various combinations, such as "Association of Friends of...", "Society of Friends of..."
That would be my choice. Non profit organizations often have a society of friends to support and/or promote them.
Here are a few examples:
Friends of the University
The Association of Friends of the International University in Germany, Bruchsal was founded in January 1998.
