Since 1954 we have supported cultural activities and projects that cross borders in wider Europe and that contribute to an open, inclusive and democratic society. We can continue doing this with the support of our Dutch and international partners. If you are interested in partnering with us, please contact Maria Virto Marcilla, Funding and Partnerships Manager.

Core partner

The Prins Bernhard Culture Fund is one of the largest cultural foundations in the Netherlands, and supports a large number of cultural  and educational initiatives each year. The partnership between ECF and the PBCF was initiated in the 1960’s by HRH Prince Bernhard and continues until this date. 

ECF is grateful for the longstanding partnership with the Prins Bernhard Culture Fund. As a result of this partnership ECF acknowledges the annual financial contribution – via the Cultuurfonds – from BankGiro Loterij and Nederlandse Loterij.
