The Prince Claus Fund is accredited with ANBI status and a CBF seal of approval. The Central Bureau on Fundraising (CBF) is an independent foundation that promotes trustworthy fundraising and expenditure by reviewing fundraising organisations and giving information and advice to government institutions and the public.

What is the CBF seal of approval? This seal of approval is a recognition of charities by CBF, the Dutch Charities Regulator. Organisations recognized by the CBF have shown that they comply with strict quality requirements. Of course, the requirements of larger organisations differ from those of smaller organisations. Approximately 80 percent of private monetary donations are currently under the supervision of the CBF. You can safely give to a CBF-approved charity because you can assume that the organisation contributes to a better world, treats every euro with care, is accountable, and is subject to independent evaluation.
