POLICY

The objective of Fonds 1999 is to improve society, primarily in the Netherlands, by supporting initiatives and projects that make society happier, more inclusive and more positive. We look for projects that meet one or more of our core values: bringing happiness, making a positive contribution to society and caring for, maintaining and passing on culture and nature to subsequent generations. Education in the broadest sense of the word is an important starting point in the choice of projects. Because if people are willing to continue to learn for their entire life and if they remain open to new ideas and influences, this can have a positive influence on society.

The board of Fonds 1999 chooses the projects that it wishes to support. Both one-off and multiyear projects can be supported. Applications cannot be submitted.

In addition to connecting with our core values, we look for passion, entrepreneurship, an expert and dedicated organisation and competent management.

FINANCIAL POLICY

The Fonds 1999 Foundation finances its projects from a trust fund. At least 90% of the annual yield is used to fund its goals. Fonds 1999 does not seek donations and funds.

Each year, the foundation’s finances are presented in an annual report that is submitted for approval by the board of the foundation.

The fund was established in 2017.
