Our Moustaqbel Foundations
We operate through two Foundations, one in Amsterdam ( a Dutch law ” Stichting” ) and one in Marrakech (a Moroccan law “Assocation”) . This is necessary for practical and legal reasons. Both have Dutch “ANBI’ status.

They help with the day to day operations and realisation of the board’s initiatives.

Dar Moustaqbel does not pay rent. The historic 18th century property – newly renovated and ready to use – has been made available long term by the owners at no cost to the Moustaqbel Foundations. Solar panels provide the building with its own hot water supply. This investment and all fixed furnishings were also a donation from the owners of the building. The running costs of the Moustaqbel Foundation consist of food, activities, professional support for our students by our team and teachers, energy and internet.
Fundraising has high priority. We are on a continuous journey searching for sponsoring, donations, gifts, subsidies, and private funds. In order to raise funds, the Moustaqbel Foundation approaches various private donors, companies, schools and other organisations. Fundraising is carried out in a direct and effective manner, both in private and business relations. Multimedia and social media are part of the fundraising strategy, as well as free publicity in magazines, newspapers and other publications. Every year we adapt our fundraising campaign strategy to obtain the necessary financial means. These initiatives are carried out by our board members and our ambassadors. In addition we use our website moustaqbel.org and other social media such as facebook, instagram, digital magazines and newspapers to report our activities.
Both Moustaqbel Foundations have official ANBI status and comply as such with the demands from the Dutch tax authorities through which it is possible for sponsors to deduct the funds fiscally in the case of a minimum five year commitment.
The acquired funds are spent completely (100 percent) on the running costs of the project and in accordance with the statutes of the Moustaqbel Foundation. We would like to emphasize that all board members, both in the Netherlands and Morocco, dedicate their time on a voluntary basis and do not receive any remuneration, or reimbursement of travel costs or compensation in any form.
