The first acquaintance with the WhyNot foundation was 9 years ago. At my previous employer SAS Institute in Huizen, the father of one of the founders (Marloes Herber) introduced WhyNot. The company supported a number of actions and made financial contributions, after which the company started supporting other charities.
I kept in touch with WhyNot, which resulted in a collaboration between WhyNot and our children's school: Comenius College in Hilversum. The school entered into a 3-year agreement with WhyNot in 2013, with the theme: Expedition Comenius. Every year, the school organizes an activity week that is dedicated to 'social welfare'. The children can choose from several foundations, and WhyNot was one of them. Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)
Since 2016, I have been a member of the Advisory Board: a sounding board group of people who, from different perspectives, provide advice to the Board of Directors.
