The Achmea Foundation invests in sustainable initiatives, giving priority to social impact. We do not believe that you can make a long-term difference with a short-term donation.
Local entrepreneurship and a local presence are the driving forces for long-lasting improvements.
With our partners, we always seek a form of investment that will boost local businesses.
The Achmea Foundation particularly wants to support progressive initiatives where the proposed innovation still has to prove itself, meaning that the founder is finding it difficult to attract sufficient funding. It is important that the initiatives also have the potential to be scaled up. There must also be the prospect of long-term financial independence. We offer three types of financing: social lending, donations and combined, or hybrid, financing.
