The Kepler Cheuvreux Foundation
Johannes Vermeerstraat 9
1071 DK Amsterdam

Dutch public benefit foundation (ANBI)

Amsterdam 8th January 2024

The Foundation remained highly active in 2023, hosting several fundraising sports and client events across various European countries. Another highlight was our fourth annual Charity Trading Day on Thursday, 23 November—Thanksgiving Day in the United States. This event, our largest fundraiser of the year, successfully raised over €300k.

The funds raised have been instrumental in supporting our nine anchor projects, all dedicated to nurturing, protecting, and educating young people across Europe. In addition, we made contributions to several food banks throughout Europe. Volunteers from our London and Amsterdam offices also dedicated a day to assist two of the food banks and charities we proudly support. Finally, in Q4 we added a tenth anchor project, Institut Robert-Debré du Cerveau de l’Enfant, broadening our impact and outreach.

In total, we disbursed € 1 072 562 in 2023, of which € 572 098 in December 2023 in our 9th round of disbursements.

In Q4, we appointed two new board members: Anne Lacarriere and Kathleen Gailliot. The board now consists of seven members.

Looking ahead to 2024, we plan to continue our successful fundraising sports and client initiatives and the Charity Trading Day, aiming to surpass previous fundraising achievements. New initiatives will include expanding our volunteering efforts with food banks and initiating mentorship programmes for young people. We will remain committed to supporting our ten anchor projects and food banks.

In 2024, we will also reach the symbolic threshold of €5M in donations collected and distributed since the Foundation’s inception.

Since its creation in March 2020 and its legal incorporation in June 2020, the Foundation has distributed a total of € 4,861 million to beneficiaries by end Q4 2023.  The foundation’s current donation efforts are focused on medical and social care organisations dedicated to children (Necker-Enfants Malades children’s hospital), Het Vergeten Kind (the Forgotten Child) etc. and food banks.

The Foundation’s income comes from Kepler Cheuvreux itself via monthly donations, voluntary deductions from bonus for employees, voluntary payroll deductions, the annual Charity Trading Day, various ad hoc Kepler Cheuvreux client events where clients are invited to make a donation to the Foundation.

The Foundation is always open to donations. Kepler Cheuvreux has continued to contribute €50,000 per month since the Foundation was launched.
