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 2022, the Flow Traders Foundation has a further goal of aiding organizations and individuals who are affected by, or who are fighting the consequences and impacts of, the Ukraine conflict.
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.
The Flow Traders Foundation will try to achieve its goal as mentioned above by, among other things:
Supporting organizations on the ground
We provided direct assistance to Red Cross Ukraine to support with aid to those effected, this included relief goods/donations.
Providing support to families and children
Through War Child, the foundation provides support to families and children who have fled Ukraine, this includes donations/volunteers.
Collecting and donating relief goods
The Flow Traders team organized local fundraising events and a donation drive to support families in Ukraine.
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”.
