Driven by water

A day, a ship, for one seriously ill person and his/her loved ones
Since 2007, we have been making individual, free day trips with people who no longer have any prospect of recovery.

You can request a wish below.Wensaanvraag

Our goal:
Suppose... you have received bad news that you are terminally ill.
Suppose... you are at home to arrange your last matters, or you are in a hospital or in a hospice and you can still go out for a day to enjoy a fully catered sailing day on a wonderful ship with your loved ones.
The Vaarwens Foundation arranges the whole day, including catering and completely free of charge.

Our results:
Many hundreds of terminally ill people have now experienced what it is like to spend one more day out in a wonderful environment and ambiance. All sailing days are described on this site with lots of photo material.
Take a look and convince yourself of the emotional value of this wonderful cause.

Our reach:
Our guests come from Groningen to Goes and from Hengelo to Haarlem, so we operate nationally. The ships always sail centrally in the water-rich Netherlands and can be reached by everyone within a few hours.

Our request:
Help us to continue to donate the sailing days and donate to a day of care.

Your donation:
The foundation runs almost exclusively on volunteers and your donation is fully used for the foundation costs and to allow the ships to sail. The Vaarwens Foundation has ANBI status for your tax deduction.

Our consideration:
A sailing day, including everything needed for this special day, is provided free of charge for the guests.
This includes the entire organization, any ambulance transport, any nursing, catering, the expenses for deploying the ship, etc.
Below you can see a short impression of the volunteer work.

ANBI - Algemeen nut beogende instelling -

Vanaf 1-1-2008 zijn giften gedaan aan goeddoelinstellingen aftrekbaar van het belastbaar inkomen als de instelling aangemerkt is als algemeen nut beogende instelling (anbi). Met de zoekfunctie van de Belastingdienst* dient u voordat u een schenking doet te controleren of (de door u gedane) schenkingen aftrekbaar zijn. Vanzelfsprekend dient de schenking aan een anbi ook te voldoen aan alle overige eisen van de Belastingdienst.
