Improving our living environment sustainably
We are committed to the people around us. By supporting many initiatives and events as the largest employer in Zeeuws-Vlaanderen, we contribute to the viability, well-being and economy in our region. As part of this, we also have an enthusiastic donation team. On behalf of our organization, they seek to support local and regional projects that sustainably improve the quality of our living environment.
Donation focus areas
Donations are always in line with our organizational values. Focus areas are nature & environment, education, innovation, community/volunteering and diversity & inclusion. If you want to get an idea of the projects we support, take a look here.

Submit donation request
The team meets regularly to assess the requests received or to propose donation projects themselves. Of course, everyone who submits a request will receive written feedback from the donation team. Keep in mind that due to administrative processing, etc., it can take quite some time before you receive a response. Do you want to know if your project is eligible for a donation anyway? View the decision tree below.
Is your project eligible and do you want to submit a donation request? That can be very simple. Fill in the form via the red button below, and also send an official application letter by e-mail to email@example.com. To meet the donation requirements, the letter must contain the following information: logo and name of the foundation, address, Chamber of Commerce and VAT number, IBAN, explanation of the project including amount requested (min. 1000 euros), name and signature of contact person. For the sake of clarity, we ask you to state the project name in the subject of the email. We do not donate to individuals or organizations for profit.
