The organisation

The organisation

The Active Health Foundation (AHF) was founded on 5 September 2017 in Rotterdam. The board consists of four members, with the chairman being responsible for day-to-day management of the projects. He does this with the consent and under the supervision of the other board members. The foundation has no employees.

Noblesse oblige

The board members and advisory members act on the basis of ‘noblesse oblige’. They receive no remuneration for their work. However, the board members are entitled to reimbursement of expenses incurred by them in the performance of their duties.

Resources of the Foundation

The resources of the Foundation are obtained from donations by individuals, companies, charities and by granted subsidies. In addition, there are various partners who contribute in kind (knowledge, manpower, a network, etc.) and/or financially to the realisation of projects. At the end of each financial year, a financial statement is published. The way in which AHF contributes or has contributed to the individual projects is reported.

Main points of the policy plan

Using traditional and modern philanthropic instruments, the Foundation provides both financial and non-financial support to initiatives that contribute to “healthy people and a healthy world”. The first years were marked by preparations to provide the Foundation with a substantial budget from 2021 onwards.

In 2019, AHF invested in several activities, some of which were continued in 2020 and will continue in 2021. See current projects and completed projects for more information on each project. The method of the foundation is that it actively initiates, approaches and selects projects.
