"At the FERRY Foundation, we're on a mission to make Rotterdam the ultimate LGBTQ+ nightlife hotspot! We're here to support you - whether you're an individual or organization - in creating events that celebrate diversity and inclusivity. Let's make Rotterdam the place to be for unforgettable LGBTQ+ experiences!"

Our objective

To support (financially) LGBTQ+ performers, artists, organizations, collectives and/or natural persons who organize activities of any kind in the Rotterdam area and surroundings and thereby enrich the 'community' and or its attraction in this area.

Implementation of this objective will take place through periodic payments to organizations and or individuals with which they can carry out their plans. The foundation publishes on its website a step-by-step plan that can be followed to apply for support. At set times a committee, appointed by the board of the foundation, will assess submitted plans and whether or not to support them.
