20 years of DOEN 20 stories

In 1981 the founders of the Dutch Postcode Lottery decided to establish a foundation for supporting small, sustainable and innovative projects. In the past 20 years the DOEN Foundation became the fund of the three charity lotteries. We received more than 27,000 applications of which we were able to honor more
than four thousand.
The story of DOEN is the story of people whose dream we made true. People who wish to make a contribution to a sustainable world in which everyone can participate. In this publication they explain what DOEN's contribution to their initiative has meant to them and to the people for whom they develop their activities.
