Catalytic Philanthropy

Working as a catalyst for change, we initiate projects that address the structural challenges facing the built environment and our society.

These challenges are often large and complex. This is why working in partnerships is essential, because by engaging in strong partnerships with relevant stakeholders, we can make a real difference and a much greater impact than we can on our own.

With a problem-oriented approach we start by localizing the problem. A clear definition of the problem field is a precondition for effective prioritisation of our philanthropic activities, and it is an essential foundation for positive change.

Our philanthropic strategy and our five programmes have been drawn up on the basis of extensive evaluation and analysis work in close dialogue with collaboration partners, leading practitioners, external researchers and experts.
