This paper aims at analyzing and upgrading the legal status of sponsorship contracts as for cultural activities. It is recommended to adopt various legislative changes, many of which could exemplify the proposed ‘funding-promotion’ paradigm. The key of this model is to focus on private individuals and legal entities either under the public law or under the private one, as potential sponsors, donators etc. and to provide them with sufficient motivation. A tax exemption percentage of 10% is not compatible with the sponsorship concept. Last but not least, tourism law has recently begun to adopt the cultural sponsorship contract model.
