Income, spending percentage and continuity reserve

The result (€ 996,603) has been added to the foundation's equity, which amounted to € 4,643,116 as per 31 December 2007. A large proportion of this equity has been set aside as a continuity reserve (€ 4,000,000) to act as a buffer against a sudden drop of income. The level of this reserve is based on the costs to maintain the organisation and the programmes running for a minimum of six months and a maximum of one year. The scope of this reserve falls well within the guidelines set down by the Dutch Fundraising Institutions Association (VFI).
