Financial figures

Here are the published quarterly and year-to-date financials of Stichting Ecosystem Restoration Foundation. These figures do not cover the individual budgets of each community. Restoration communities also have their own fundraising. Below, you will find the amounts the foundations have donated to the communities. The foundation aims to have 85% of the raised funds go directly to communities. After the end of each calendar year we publish a full and detailed annual report.


Income is received through individual supporters, institutional donors (such as philanthropic foundations and governmental subsidies), corporate sponsorship, and income from education and ERC experiences.


Our expenditure is divided into four categories:

  • Support to ERCs: Money spent at the foundations to support communities, such as resource development and supporting joint fundraising.
  • Direct financial support to ERCs: Money channelled through the foundations to communities. We are aiming to have 85% of funds raised go to communities over the coming years. In this phase of our development, where we focus on building sufficient capacity to support communities, this is not yet possible.
  • Knowledge exchange and educational work: Costs incurred on the ERC Knowledge Exchange Platform and our educational offering, including dedicated staff-costs.
  • Management, fundraising and overheads: Costs incurred outside the above categories, such as salaries of the directors, fundraising, general IT costs, office and travel costs, bank and payment-service provider costs, and finally accountancy and bookkeeping costs.
