What We Do

The Flow Traders Foundation will develop various new activities and commit itself to the existing societal contribution activities of Flow Traders.

For the year 2020, the Flow Traders Foundation has a further goal of providing assistance to organizations and individuals who are affected by, or who are fighting the consequences and impacts of, the COVID-19 pandemic.

Our Story

At Flow Traders we have long believed it is important for us to back initiatives that contribute to society. We’ve done so for many years – through the firm itself and through employee’s personal efforts. Employees are enthusiastic about supporting charitable initiatives, which has always been part of our working culture.

As a result of Flow Traders’ employees as well as two of its founders, Jan van Kuijk and Roger Hodenius, wishing to make a significant, structured annual societal contribution with a focus on the health and wellbeing of people in need, the Flow Traders Foundation was established on 28 April 2020.

COVID-19

The Flow Traders Foundation will try to achieve its goal as mentioned above by, among other things:

Combat the effects of the virus

We will provide assistance to combat the effects of the virus. These include relief goods/donations to institutions such as the Red Cross, relief goods/donations to hospitals, and/or support for nursing staff.

Home education

We will provide assistance to organizations/individuals affected by the virus, including children who lack the resources for home education.

Prize

The awarding of a prize to an organization or individual who has, in their view, made an outstanding effort in relation to the 2020 Flow Traders Foundation plan.

Donate or help

The Foundation has received ANBI status and is therefore eligible to receive donations.

Charity Events

Our employees actively participate in charitable initiatives throughout the year. For example, every winter our employees come together to donate holiday gifts to children in need. We also support education initiatives in our communities, for instance with IMC Weekendschool. Employees also participate in charitable events, raising money and awareness for organizations through initiatives like the ”War Child Kili Challenge” and ”Wall Street Rides FAR”.
