Thank you Dutch Postcode Lottery Prince Claus Fund

The Prince Claus Fund is grateful for the support of the Dutch Postcode Lottery, which has been a partner of the Fund since 2001. Thank you to the Postcode Lottery and all its participants!

On 4 March 2020, the Dutch Postcode Lottery donated a record €376 million to 123 organisations working toward a better world! The Prince Claus Fund was among the 105 charitable organisations to receive their fixed, freely spendable contribution for 2020.  And this year another 18 organisations also received a special, one-time donation. Read more about the announcements made about the Postcode Lottery's beneficiaries at the 2020 Goed Geld Gala here. 

The support of the Dutch Postcode Lottery is essential for the Prince Claus Fund's work in the field of culture and development. Since 2001, the Lottery has generously contributed €500,000 annually to the Fund. In 2019, the Lottery announced it would support the Fund's project 'Amplifying Creative Voices' for an additional €1.305 million.  The Fund is grateful to have also received additional funding in past years for the Cultural Defiance Fund (supporting artists in conflict situations), the Sahel Opera (an operatic production of music from the Sahel region) and its Cultural Emergency Response programme (the Fund’s ‘ambulance’ for cultural heritage under threat).
