The Club of Madrid among the prestigious 2011 Dutch Postcode Lottery donation program beneficiaries

February 11, 2011

The Club of Madrid was chosen as one of 83 recipient organizations of the 2011 Dutch Postcode Lottery donation program at this week’s Goed Geld Gala (Gala Good Money) held at the Singer Laren Museum in Amsterdam.

For over 20 years, the Netherlands’ largest charity lottery has distributed half of its revenues to charitable organizations working on behalf of humanity and nature in the Netherlands and abroad. This year, over €270 million were distributed to organizations such as UNICEF, Doctors without Borders, Amnesty International and the Clinton Foundation.

It is an honour for us to be granted with this contribution, which comes as a recognition to our work and efforts over the past ten years.  

This donation will allow us to attend the growing demand of requests from different countries undergoing political transformation and transition to democracy and thus improve the lives of people. Events in TunisiaEgyptand tremors in the Middle East over the past weeks, evidence the speed with which change can unravel. The kind of experienced, neutral counsel that the Club of Madrid can provide to political and civil society leaders is and can be particularly useful in this kind of situations. Thanks to the Dutch Postcode Lottery, we can continue and broaden our efforts towards a ‘democracy that delivers.’

Her Royal Highness Princess Máxima of the Netherlands attended the Goed Geld Gala as a special guest and spoke to the charities about the importance of their work.

The Club of Madrid thanks the Dutch Postcode Lottery for its generous support and the trust given to our work.
