Frequently asked questions

Stichting Kinderpostzegels Nederland, Oranje Fonds and Kansfonds. Their working area is the Kingdom of the Netherlands. In the Netherlands, the funds operate separately from each other. They have joined forces in the Caribbean part of the Kingdom and will form one central point of contact for support until 2025. Even after that moment, the funds will continue to work for the Caribbean, but are expected to do so separately and next to each other, just as in the Netherlands. When more is known about the way we will work after 2024, we will announce this via the website.

We provide financial contributions for social projects in the Caribbean part of the Kingdom. For example, we support shelter for ex-detainee young people. But also activities for the elderly, children, or projects for quality of life in the neighborhood. In this way we want to increase involvement between people. And ensure that everyone can participate in society.
