About Flowfund

Stichting Flowfund is a foundation founded and funded by Fred Matser primarily with the aim to promote harmony: within people (the invironment), between people, and between people and the environment. Flowfund donates money to only a few selected charitable organizations, currently being Fred Foundation, ForestPeace Foundation and Essentia Foundation. By design Flowfund has a finite lifetime and aims to spend all its assets to public benefit causes in the course of a few decades. As such part of the assets can be invested with a longer horizon. The trustees aim to invest in a responsible way, and where possible support initiatives and/or investment funds to invest with positive impact on society.
