Who we are

Adessium Foundation aspires to a society that encourages people to live in harmony with each other and with their environments. We work to achieve a balanced society characterized by integrity, a balance between people and nature, and social harmony.

We do this by supporting initiatives and organizations that target subjects of social importance. These grantees strive to effect lasting positive change in our society. Our focus is mainly on the Netherlands and Europe. In addition to financial contributions, we provide organizational support focused on strengthening grantees’ capacity.

Adessium Foundation is a private and independent grant making foundation, based in the Netherlands. We do not raise funds or goods from third parties. We spend our income on donations for beneficiaries, and on our expenses made in that context. The Foundation is recognized as a “public benefit organization” (ANBI) by the Dutch tax authorities.
