Presentation on funding for social projects


PHILIPSBURG – Samenwerkende Fondsen, also known as the Cooperating Foundations for the Dutch Caribbean, will be hosting an information session focused on funding opportunities for social projects.

Samenwerkende Fondsen is an organization that is facilitated by 5 funds, originating from the Netherlands. It was set up in 2010 to support social initiatives in the Dutch Caribbean islands. Locally, after some organizational changes, a new Project Coordinator has taken up the role of assisting with assessing possible funding opportunities, as well as in Saba and Statia.

The presentation will be hosted for any organizations that are interested in executing social projects, but lack the required funding to do so. It will be hosted by the new Project Coordinator and a visiting Project Advisor from the Netherlands. There will be time allocated for discussion and questions pertaining to specific funding opportunities.

The presentation will take place on Wednesday, June 22, at the NIA Black Box Theatre at the John Larmonie Center, Longwall Road #20 in Philipsburg, from 5:30pm to 7:30pm. Drinks and snacks will be provided.

Samenwerkende Fondsen is looking forward to seeing all organizations in attendance, new and longstanding, as well as ones already aware of the scope of the organization.
