Not For Profit StatusANBI
The Global Stroll Buddy Network Foundation has successfully asked the Dutch government to issue an ANBI (Algemeen Nut Beogende Instelling) certification (851127149). This is, in essence, a “Not for Profit” status.
One of the advantages of this certification is that the Foundation is able to receive gifts without having to pay taxes and that donations given to the Foundation may be tax-deductible.
This certification will not influence the Stroll Buddy concept, our goals or the way we work.
The board of the Global Stroll Buddy Network Foundation has currently three members:
J.J. Nusse – Chairman
M. de Wilde – Treasurer
R.F. Nusse – Member
The Global Stroll Buddy Network Foundation does not pay – nor has ever paid – any fees to any of the board members or office holders. All board members are 100% voluntary.
The Global Stroll Buddy Network Foundation aims to focus on growth; both in terms of the number of Stroll Buddy destinations as well as the number of Strolls.
You can read about our goals and intentions in our Policy plan 2017-2020.
The financial audited accountants of 2016 – 2017 – 2018 are available on line and to the public (sorry, in Dutch only).
The Global Stroll Buddy Network Foundation is registered at the Chamber of Commerce in the Netherlands with RSIN number 821745438
