De Boomgaard Foundation

De Boomgaard Foundation was established on May 12, 2005 as a private grant-giving foundation by two philanthropists to support local and international causes we feel connected with.

It stands for:

  • Increasing resilience of people, including refugee families and children
  • Giving those with the least opportunities a fair share
  • Advancing climate justice
  • Promoting girls education and empowerment
  • Supporting freedom of press and expression in Eastern Europe
  • Local initiatives

Since 2006 the foundation has grown into a solid funding body with multiple partners. It has been ranked as public benefit organization and can make and receive tax-free donations. Its administration is limited to a minimum. Foundation De Boomgaard chooses initiatives, projects and people to collaborate with itself.
