The Vanderes Foundation is a Dutch certified Public Benefit Organisation (PBO, better known as ANBI in the Netherlands). It was founded in May 2017 by Izak van der Sluijs to improve the quality of, and access to education around the globe, through making investments.

We believe education is one of the main ways to permanently escape poverty, as it transcends generations, with educated parents being more likely to provide for (even better) education for their children.

Our focus is on projects around education financing (student loans), as well as school financing.

We have a global mandate, though we are more likely to operate in lower GDP countries by virtue of our goal.

More details about the foundation can be found on the contact page.
