NL doet - Let's Get Your Organization Registered!
Every service organization has this issue: Hands-on volunteer jobs that are important, but for which there are no helping hands. These tasks often include things like refurbishing a building, preparing a vegetable garden for the summer, or organizing something for residents, among many others. In our experience, we know that many current residents of The Hague are willing to take these on! So Oranje Fonds and PEP Den Haag are bringing supply and demand together with our annual volunteering event, NLDoet. The annual NLDoet is the largest volunteer event in the Netherlands. Do you plan to participate?
Request a Financial Contribution for Your NLDoet Job
Once again, Oranje Fonds is organizing NLdoet together with thousands of organizations around the country for the largest volunteer campaign in the Netherlands. You as an organization can submit financial support applications to Oranje Fonds if you are organizing an NLDoet job. The maximum amount that can be applied for is €350. Please note, you have not automatically made a financial request just by posting your job on the NLDoet website; you must apply separately. Space is limited, so make sure to apply as soon as possible!
Offer a Volunteer Job?
Are you affiliated with a social organization where volunteers are needed? NLDoet is the perfect opportunity to tackle any activity with them. Participation means extra hands, new networks, and brand awareness for your organization. Do you have a job or do you want to do something extra during NLDoet?
