Included in Mr Koijmans will

Mr Koijmans from The Hague has included the Heliconia Scholarship Foundation in his will! The foundation was approached by Mr Koijmans’ business representative in May of last year. Being born in Indonesia, Mr Koijmans has a special connection to the country. He was now looking for a charity to donate his assets to, when he is no longer here. The Heliconia Scholarship Foundation is the only charity in the Netherlands that has the exact same mission as Mr Koijmans had in mind: supporting tertiary education. Most charities focus on elementary and high school education only. Thankfully, we found each other! After meeting each other several times in Mr Koijmans’ retirement home, we have now officially been included in his will.

This amazing development gives us the opportunity to grow considerably in the future. Of course, this special gift also comes with a renewed sense of responsibility. We are honoured that Mr Koijmans has given us his trust. With all the knowledge and experience that we’ve gained over the recent years, we are happy to accept the challenge. Many thanks to Mr Koijmans!
