Covid-19 and the foundations
13.03.2020 - updated 03.04.2020 l Latest news
Covid-19 is affecting our entire civil society these days - and it will continue to do so in the foreseeable future.
It is only natural that a certain insecurity will arise with our grantees concerning the projects we support or the viability of potential projects - e.g. due to delay of project deadlines or analysis and initiatives that must be postponed or redefined.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us.
Here you can find contact information for all our employees within the different grant areas.
The foundations of Europe unite
03.04.2020: The two European platforms for philanthropy, EFC (European Foundation Centre) and DAFNE (Donors and Foundations Networks in Europe), have published a pledge, signed by more than 100 European foundations, including THE VELUX FOUNDATIONS.
By signing the pledge we commit to the following towards our grantees: We enter a dialogue on how to adapt activities and deadlines to the current situation, we show financial flexibility - and at an overall level, we listen and show that we care.
