During the recent 11stedenzwemtocht event organised by the Maarten van der Weijden Foundation, over € 5.000.000 were raised in the fight against cancer. Most of these donations were raised using iRaiser’s online fundraising tools for event fundraising.

In the coming years, the foundation organises multiple events all with the goal of raising as much funds as possible for cancer research. In order to facilitate these fundraising activities, the foundation has renewed their contract with iRaiser for another three years.

Maarten van der Weijden states: ”After the success we had in 2018, I am confident that iRaiser will continue to provide us with a tremendous amount of support in the years to come. The possibilities offered by their platform are a perfect fit with our ambitions, and the dedication of their employees creates a nice working environment. We are happy we have found sponsors that support our decision to renew the contract. This enables us to keep our promise towards our donors of spending 100% of the incoming donations on cancer research.”

“Of course we are immensely proud to extend our contract with the Maarten van der Weijden Foundation and keep supporting their online fundraising activities. The current multi year contract reflects the trust they have in our organisation. In the previous period, our Sales Manager, Leontine Vreeke, explored the ambitions and goals of the foundation and explained what our new platform can do for them. As a team, we are

looking forward to contributing to such an important mission.”, states Jonas Hoving, Country Manager iRaiser Netherlands.

Currently the Maarten van der Weijden Foundation and iRaiser are working on a new and improved platform, which will be live by the end of Q1 2019.
