We are the largest independent consultancy in the Netherlands in the field of philanthropic advice. We enable grantmaking foundations, corporate foundations, family foundations and charities to have the greatest impact when giving. We do this by offering advice, support and by sharing ideas. We thus help improve the climate of giving and increase the impact of philanthropy.

Empower

Foundations are the driving force behind a wide range of social initiatives, but society is continuously changing. We will help you be one step ahead of societal changes so that you have the right quality and knowledge in place to face emerging challenges. Your charitable donations will then continue to give an important contribution to society for a very long time.

Connect

Societal challenges are often so big that foundations are unable to solve them alone. They need to collaborate with beneficiaries, other funders, government bodies and others. We have a large and relevant network to draw on to make connections around particular themes or target groups. This will help ensure that your contribution has the biggest possible impact on society.

Innovate

We continuously signal any new developments which may affect foundations. Our motto, ‘We can always do better’, encourages our clients and ourselves to push the boundaries and look at things differently. We use what we learn nationally and internationally to offer new perspectives and to motivate our clients to look critically at their actions. In doing so, we drive the philanthropy sector to respond and adapt to changing situations.

We encourage donors, foundations and philanthropists to contribute to reaching the Sustainable Development Goals, otherwise known as the SDGs. Where we can, we make connections between philanthropic institutions, social organizations, government bodies and corporations to encourage collaboration between sectors.
