Stichting Democratie en Media

Amsterdam (The Netherlands)

The Democracy and Media Foundation is an equity fund. The biggest share of our capital is invested in  media companies, namely De Persgroep Nederland (i.a. De VolkskrantTrouw and Het Algemeen Dagblad) and MediaHuis Nederland (NRC Handelsblad and nrc.next). With these investments, we support truth-finding and plurality within the Dutch media landscape. We are also one of the initiators of the European Press Prize and we have a minority interest in digital native De Correspondent.

The rest of our capital is invested with the ASN Bank and the Triodos Bank. We use the returns of these investments to support initiatives and organizations which contribute to a strong and honest constitutional democracy as well as independent media. Among others, we support publications, lectures, documentaries, technological innovations, exhibitions, prizes in journalism and training for journalists.
