Outlines of the policy of Stichting Het ir. Etward Bunschotenfonds (The Bunschoten Fund)

Goal

The goal of the Fund is to use the fruits and income from its capital to periodically give financial support to Dutch institutions in the area of classical music.

The capital of the Fund has been bequeathed to the Fund by Mr. Willem Frederik Bunschoten, under inheritance law. From the income from the capital of the Fund, (half-)yearly gifts are donated to institutions which will be assigned by the Board. This assigning will happen, preferably, during the half-yearly meetings in March or September of any given year. During the meeting in March, the annual report of the previous calendar year is also approved. During the half-yearly meeting the incoming applications are considered. The applications need to address the goals and the policy of the Fund.

Capital
The capital must be managed in such a fashion that it endures and that, additionally, there is a reasonable outlook on income that can be used for its intended goal. If in any given calendar year, as a result of stock exchange developments, the capital falls below the amount that is considered to be a desirable, index-linked amount, it may be still be decided to make certain disbursements to the intended goal. However, the capital needs to be brought up to standard in the following years. When in any given year a surplus of revenues exists that can, in the opinion of the board, not be used for its intended goal in a meaningful way, this amount will have to be reserved for extra disbursements in the following years.

Renumeration policy
The Fund has no personnel, the members of the Board receive no salary. There is however the option of reimbursing expenses. In such a case this is established in a Board decision. Whenever the services of professional parties are used, normal business transaction expenses can be paid. Board members can receive a remuneration for attending meetings according to the ‘Attendance fee resolution’.

Liquidation of the Fund
When the Fund is liquidated, the liquidation balance must be used for goals that fit the goals of the Fund.
