Named fund

If you are considering a large donation, you may be interested in a named fund. Your contribution will then be managed separately and accounted for in our Annual report, for instance. You can make agreements with us on the specific allocation and name of the fund (for example, in the spirit of). You can determine the objective of the named fund (provided it is within the framework of the fund). A one time named fund is possible for a minimum donation of €50,000. In the case of a named endowment fund (the capital is invested and the income earned is used) the minimum donation will be ten times this amount. Of course you can donate directly, but it would be even nicer as next of kin to collect the contributions yourself and to offer them to us ‘on behalf of’. This makes the joyful memory tangible and visible. An example of a named fund is the Mariënburg Campus Fund.
