PHILIPSBURG:— SFC was set up over 14 years ago, as a collaborative effort to support social initiatives on the Dutch Caribbean islands, regardless of their status within the Kingdom. It is an organization that is facilitated by six funding agencies, originating from the Netherlands; Fonds Sluyterman van Loo, Innovatiefonds Zorgverzekeraars, Kansfonds, Oranje Fonds, Stichting Kinderpostzegels, and the newly joined Roomsch Catholijk Oude Armen Kantoor (RCOAK).
During this working visit, some 22 NGOs on Sint Maarten, Saba, and Statia were visited collectively. These were organizations that have shown interest or have submitted applications for funding, as well as projects that are ongoing that have been funded by SFC. Government representatives, other funding streams and agencies, as well as (emergency) relief organizations were also met with to ensure increased social funding efficiency and to discuss how and where more could be done (collaboratively and independently).
The working visit started out earlier last week on Curacao with a visit to Aruba as well. Later continuing to the SSS-islands. All Dutch Caribbean islands have a local office and a local project coordinator or advisory committee, and are there to assist with funding applications and inquiries. These offices provide general support to social endeavours in need of funding.
