In line with the entrepreneurial background of its founders, we fund the accelerated growth of initiatives that are in line with our mission and priorities and that can demonstrate measurable and sustainable impact, are innovative and scalable. Ideally, the projects we support can operate, over time, without gifts and donations, i.e projects that have the potential to be financially self-supporting. Funding will usually be in the form of a grant or a loan, however the Foundation will also consider making an equity investment in certain cases and under certain conditions.
The Foundation is looking to create long term partnerships with the projects and organisations it works with, principally through providing financial support. Where appropriate, we also offer the professional expertise and experience of the Foundation’s Board and Project Board members in support of the projects the Foundation funds.
Projects in The Netherlands as well as international projects are within the scope of the Foundation provided the legal entity requesting the funding is registered in The Netherlands. If you are requesting a donation, we expect you to have ANBI status. As a provider of private funding we are able and willing to consider requests for both capital and operational expenditure. The Foundation does, in principle, not provide funding to individuals.
