The ‘Erkenning’ (or Recognition) is the Netherlands Fundraising Regulator’s (CBF) quality mark for charities. When a charity has been recognised by the CBF (CBF-Erkend Goed Doel), you can trust that the organisation has been closely reviewed and meets strict requirements.


Requirements differ between large and smaller organisations. No less than 4.4 billion euros worth of private donations is held under the supervision of the CBF. A CBF seal of approval guarantees that the organisation you are contributing to truly contributes to a better world, handles every euro with care, is accountable, and is independently audited.
