Local Funds Foundation (Stichting Lokale Fondsen)
The Local Funds Foundation was established in 2014. It stimulates civil initiatives to set up community foundations to further enhance social cohesion and quality of life in their local community. The organization dreams of an inclusive and livable local society for every resident. That is why it supports community foundations all over the country. Currently, the Local Funds Foundation focuses on inviting citizens to request financial support for their local initiatives, but also expanding its portfolio of services for existing community foundations in the Netherlands.
