Dutch Charity Lotteries
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. DOEN’s role is to provide support in the very first phase in order to give initiatives a flying start, and thereby stimulate innovation. Where possible, DOEN subsequently transfers the initiatives to other parties to increase their impact.
DOEN supports the initiatives of foundations, co-operatives, associations, sole proprietorships, trading partnerships and limited companies, for example. DOEN tries to achieve its objectives via these organisations and companies and by using various financial instruments. In addition to supporting these pioneers, DOEN puts them in contact with each other, and brings their initiatives to the attention of the general public.
