Stichting DOEN

Stichting DOEN

Description 

Stichting DOEN (DOEN Foundation) believes in a green, socially inclusive and creative society. The foundation witnesses how people use enterprising approaches to actively come up with innovative solutions for a better world. They take the lead, dare to take risks, and create change. They break through old structures and cast new perspectives on current challenges. These innovaters are also an inspiration to others.

With the contribution of the Dutch Charity Lotteries, the DOEN Foundation supports over 200 initiatives annually, through subsidies, equity investments, and loans. It supports both large and small initiatives and it acts from the philosophy: subsidize where necessary, provide equity investments, loans and guarantees where possible. Apart from financially helping these pioneers to realize their initiatives, the DOEN Foundation connects them to each other and brings their initiatives to the attention of a broad audience.

Stichting DOEN (DOEN Foundation) supports pioneers who work hard to establish a greener, more socially-inclusive, and more creative society, in which: 

  •  the capacity of the planet is the starting point (green);
  •  everybody can participate and people work together and help each other with respect for individual needs and possibilities (socially inclusive);
  •  art and culture are at the heart in the belief that society can not do without (creative).

The DOEN Foundation supports initiatives that focus on one of these three themes. Within these themes, the foundation works with programs which specify the type of initiatives it supports.
