The future of funding charity

The gift that keeps on giving

A donation platform for the future

As explained on our homepage for donors, the Future Fund is a charity donation platform that focuses on the future. We invest donors’ donations in the stock market and transfer the profits every year to charity. 

How we achieve our goals

  • we turn one-time donations into a source of ever-continuing and ever-growing income for charities
  • we generate a stable, reliable income for charities every year, also when donors make one-time donations (something that is happening more and more, see graph)

Advantages for charities

Ever-growing
income

An ever-lasting, ever-growing source of income for your charity in the future.

Even when donors make a one-time donation, your charity still receives a stable income, year in, year out — for good.

FAQ

No, there are no costs for charities in signing up to the Future Fund.

We ask 10% of the interest on the donations that we invest for donors to fund the Future Fund. This is on purpose a % of the interest, and not of the donation itself. This way, we only get money if the charities get money! Furthermore, we are a non-profit, so when donations via the Future Fund increase in the future, this % will go down. 

No, all investments are done through an ethical, sustainable and social investment fund. This means that there are no investments in ‘bad sectors’, such as fossil fuels, guns and smoking. Instead, ethical, sustainable and social businesses receive extra support. Even stronger: ethical, sustainable and social businesses are specifically selected and supported. For more info, see our investment policy.

The Netherlands, where we are based, has a charity certification organization: the CBF. The CBF has a page that describes what donors should pay attention to when donating via donation platforms. The Future Fund is in agreement with the CBF’s advice:
  • The Future Fund Foundation is a registered non-profit organization
  • We publish an annual report and our full financials yearly
  • An independent financial committee audits our financials
  • If the Future Fund ever ceases operations, all invested amounts are transferred to the charities for which they were invested
We also have a detailed investment policywhose first priority is safety.
