Contribute to the endowment fund

You would prefer to contribute to filia’s endowment fund and for your money be maintained there “forever”?

filia.the women’s fund was established in 2001 by nine women and with a capital of 250.000 Euros. The founders are endowment donors for a lifetime. filia is a community foundation with currently 68 endowment donors and a capital of 16 million Euros (as of 2017).

An endowment donation goes into the endowment fund. filia invests the capital according to criteria established in filia’s Investment Guidelines that focus on sustainability as well as on ecological and social impact. We can only use the yield of the capital for our work.

Your contribution helps to grow the capital and the community of the endowment donors. Women whose endowment donations are approved by the Foundation Board will be invited to the annual donors’ meeting:

  • With a contribution of 5,000 Euros plus you are an endowment donor entitled to vote for three years;
  • With a contribution of 20,000 Euros plus you are entitled to vote for 10 years;
  • With a contribution of 50,000 Euros plus you are entitled to vote for a lifetime.

During the annual donors’ meeting you can influence and shape the activity of the foundation. Every three years, the endowment donors elect during the annual donors’ meeting the seven women who sit on the Foundation Board – filia’s highest decision-making body. And as an endowment donor you will receive the filia_news four times a year and will be invited to interesting events.
