VSBfonds supports initiatives by and for anyone that wants to actively participate in Dutch society. In the form of donations, practical knowledge and networks. Emerging out of the more than two hundred year-old nonprofit ‘Maatschappij tot Nut van ‘t Algemeen’, it aims to involve all citizens in society. The fund wants to contribute to the self-reliance and social cohesion in our country. By supporting social and cultural projects and providing scholarships. The aim is to let everyone establish their place in our diverse society. And that people can grow, learn and live with one another. Hence the motto of the fund: “Everybody participates.”

VSBfonds is one of the largest private equity funds in the Netherlands. The fund has been in existence since 1990 and offers 26 million euros of donation budget each year to invest in the quality of Dutch society.
