TYPA activities are partly financed by the Ministry of Culture and the Tartu City Government through an operating grant, on a project basis by the Cultural Endowment of Estonia, the Youth Agency of the Archimedes Foundation, and others. A significant part of TYPA’s budget consists of own revenues. Nevertheless, there would be no TYPA without our many supporters, donors, and contributors. We would like to thank the following people and companies, who have all contributed to the achievement of our common goals in one way or another.
