Description

The number of employees volunteering through a business fund, has at least doubled in the last 10 years, estimates Lonneke Roza. Using company funds staff is employed as a volunteer for a good cause. Netherlands now has at least 75 of these 'foundations'. Some companies do what they do best: KPN, for example, is in charge of the Finest Contact Foundation creating digital connections for chronically ill children. Other companies support their employees who already volunteer or for example go with the whole team to help at the Food Bank for a day.
