for great ideas
The purpose of Cloverleaf Foundation is fulfilled, we have stopped
Over the past 40 years we have supported those who take initiatives in their striving to bring ideas of social ecology into reality, to help develop and prepare new generations for their task in societal life with finance or other means.
We have practiced our work from the believe that giving needs to be done in freedom, without prerequisites or obligations. We approached each request with an open mind, and engaged by deeply questioning the initiative, practicing the competence to listen with our hearts to the will impulse. We have tried our best to always work with empowerment, unwavering commitment, challenging rigour and love for the projects we believed in and supported. This approach is what we called ‘the art of giving’.
With this work we are very thankful to have been able to support so many sowers of seeds for the future. We are especially thankful for the meetings we had with all the awake and aware individuals, striving in the interest of all. Meeting so many inspired human beings has been a hope-strengthening journey.
We have come to the moment that the foundation rounded off its activities. The foundation’s capital was built up as part of the surplus of the NPI, the former organization development consultancy group, initiated by Bernard Lievegoed. These funds have been entrusted in the foundation, to ensure that money is not only extracted from the economic system, but also flows back to support societal development, via gift money. Now that all the money is donated, the purpose of the foundation is fulfilled.
May you experience many acts of giving in the future and fare well!
PURPOSE OF THE FOUNDATION
for great ideas.
Cloverleaf Foundation strived to be a lively source of support for initiative takers of projects of a social ecological nature.
These were initiatives that create fabrics of relationships, forming an integrated approach to individual, organisational and social development.
Forms of working together which acknowledge the human as a being of body, soul and spirit, which allow for the development and contribution of each individual as part of a totality, serving its purpose.
Our understanding of people and organisations is based in anthroposophy, though the projects we supported were inspired by other sources as well.
