The Association of Foundations in the Netherlands (FIN) is the umbrella organisation representing the interests of private charitable foundations in the Netherlands. Any private charitable foundation established in the Netherlands and which makes a substantial part of its capital or income available to individuals or social organisations may become a member of the FIN.
The FIN supports its members, stimulates contact and collaboration among its members, and provides a support service for good governance, asset management and donation policy. To this end it produces a number of informative publications such as the guidelines Het besturen van een fonds (Managing a Foundation) and the publication Fiscaliteit (Tax Law). The publications are only available in Dutch. The FIN also organises symposia and workshops.
