About DOEN

The DOEN Foundation believes in a green, socially inclusive and creative society. We witness 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. We support both large and small initiatives and we act 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.
