Join our community — amplify the transformative power of culture

What does culture mean to you? As an independent foundation dedicated to culture and development, we serve engaged artists in places where culture is under pressure — because free and valued cultural expression creates an equitable, peaceful, sustainable and inclusive future. 

While the stories that prove this are plentiful, we need them to multiply. That’s why we invite you to join our global community of changemakers and support cultural expression where it's needed most! For almost 30 years, we have committed to tackling the issues in three key impact areas: Climate, Freedom, and Equity, through the lenses of art and creativity.

What is the CBF seal of approval?

The CBF (Dutch Charities Regulator) grants a seal of approval to organizations that meet strict quality standards. This recognition signifies that the charity adheres to high standards of accountability and effectiveness. While requirements vary between larger and smaller organizations, about 80 percent of private donations are made to charities under CBF supervision. Donating to a CBF-approved charity ensures that your contributions are used responsibly, the organization is transparent, and it undergoes independent evaluations.

What is your donation acceptance policy?

All donations are received by our Fundraising Department and assessed according to our Ethical Donation Policy. Each donation undergoes an investigation, including donor background and donation history, with more extensive checks for larger donations. 

Criteria for Acceptance of Donations: Donations must align with our mission, values, and legal standards. Legal counsel may be consulted for certain types of gifts. Donations that conflict with our mission, pose reputational risks, or have legal or ethical concerns which jeopardise the independence of the Fund may be rejected.  

Handling of Donations: Donations are carefully documented and used to support our activities. Transparent communication about received donations and their impact is a priority. Reasons for refusal are communicated clearly to donors when appropriate. 

Roles of Supervisory Board and Executive Director: The Supervisory Board oversees and approves this policy, with any revisions approved by the Director. The Executive Director ensures the policy's implementation and effective management of donations. 

Final Provisions: This policy is effective upon approval by the Board of Directors. The Fund reserves the right to revise the policy with Board approval. Our policy is drafted in accordance with laws, emphasizing transparency, integrity, and accountability.
