The Marthe van Rijswijck Foundation (MvRF) financially supports charitable, scientific or non-profit organisations and its main goal is to contribute to the development of ideas and/or support projects of social importance with idealistic and social intent. The main focus of this support are projects that support people or groups of people who, because of social circumstances or disabilities of mental or physical nature, are limited in their development and help them create a place in society where their skills are developed, optimized and brought to good use.
A special focus is granted for the benefit of deprived and underprivileged children around the world. All projects must be managed by a Dutch organisation or individuals who do not have any commercial interest in the proposed project. The Foundation also prefers to see a certain degree of fundraising done on the NGO’s own initiative.
Charitable, scientific or non-profit organisations are eligible to apply. The MvRF prefers to support NGO’s with an existing organizational infrastructure of which the sustainability has been proven and whose the goal is to set up projects which, in the long run, will be more or less self-supporting. The project must be initiated by a Dutch organisation or individual who does not have any commercial interest in the project.
Projects from all over the world may be considered for financial support. Most funding of past projects has gone to initiatives in Africa and Asia. So far they have supported projects in Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Brazil, Bulgaria, Burkina Faso, Cambodia, Cameroon, China, Colombia, Ecuador, Ethiopia, Gambia, Ghana, Haiti, India, Indonesia, Kenya, Morocco, Namibia, Nepal, Nicaragua, Pakistan, Peru, Philippines, Romania, Rwanda, Senegal, Somalia, South Africa, Tanzania, Zambia, Zimbabwe.
Grant funding is usually small ranging from €2,000-€15,000. They support around 20-50 projects per year. Travel costs or salaries are not eligible for funding.
Interested organisations may submit a project proposal that adheres to the Foundation’s eligibility criteria. Requests for financial support will only be considered if submitted on an official MvRF funding request form that can be downloaded on the Foundation’s website. There are no deadlines.
