About the foundation
In 2008, Tom Weyland (1931 – 2009), a lawyer and member of the editorial board of The International Journal of Cultural Property, and artist Jacqueline de Jong (1939) decided to set up a foundation to support avant-garde artists and academics aged 55 and older.
The aims of the Weyland de Jong Foundation are:
- To support initiatives from older international avant-garde artists and art-related academics from different disciplines
- To manage and archive works of art and collections
- To realise publications and stimulate projects
The foundation will realise these aims by fundraising and forming alliances with individuals and organisations which can contribute to their realisation.
The foundation’s assets come from inheritances, donations, tax breaks, legacies and subsidies.
The Weyland de Jong foundation is an officially recognised cultural charity or ANBI, read: Algemeen Nut Beogende Instelling.
Methodology for fund management and allocation
All expenditure and fund allocation is at the discretion of the complete board. Where necessary, the board will request the advice of third parties. The foundation’s assets will remain liquid and will not be invested in shares or with other companies that invest capital.
