Register of Foundations
What is a foundation?
A foundation is set up to manage property donated for a particular purpose.
The purpose is determined when setting up the foundation.
Foundations have neither owners, shareholders nor members.
A board of trustees ensures that the foundation operates appropriately, and is responsible for ensuring that the investments by the foundation are secure and profitable.
Registered foundations are legal persons.
