The Netherlands has a long history of supporting charitable projects around the world.  The generosity of the Dutch in looking after the needy, the environment, health and education and other charitable causes is well-known and well-documented.

The Chapel & York Foundation Netherlands will embrace this tradition and enhance it by working with Dutch philanthropists and organisations worldwide to increase the flow of philanthropic funds within the Netherlands and throughout the world in the areas of education, poverty, religion and such other areas of public benefit in accordance with the objects of the Foundation.

The Chapel & York Foundation Netherlands is part of a Family of Foundations being established throughout the world to increase philanthropy worldwide and enhance the ability of charitable and educational organisations to bring their message and work to the greatest number of people. Our Foundations can help organisations fundraise in their countries by ensuring you have a presence in the country and enabling your donors to make tax-deductible or tax-effective donations. We open the borders for giving to the causes that you care about.

Charities, educational institutions, NGO’s and other organisations can apply today to join the Chapel & York Foundation Netherlands or the entire Family of Foundations under two membership levels — Affiliate Fund or Named Fund.

Donors can support the work of charitable organisations by making a single or occasional donation to the Foundation for the support of organisations worldwide.
