Support renovation Fokker-organ
With joy the Huygens-Fokker Foundation learned recently that the SNS REAAL Fonds has decided to support the extensive renovation of the Fokker-organ financially. By making a substantial contribution they have made our project possible. Because of this the Huygens-Fokker Foundation is very grateful to the SNS REAAL Fonds by having faith in our project and our foundation.
The foundation is also very pleased to hear that the Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds will contibute substantially to our renovationproject of the Fokker-organ. In a letter the board of the fund let us know to find the renovation from such an importance, that they decided to give us more financial support than the directives usually allow. The Huygens-Fokker Foundation is most grateful to the Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds after their recognition of the cultural importance of our project.
Support Huygens-Fokker Foundation
Since the sixties the Huygens-Fokker Foundation is financially supported bij the
state government. From 2005 to 2007 Huygens-Fokker Foundation received a four year subsidy
of the Ministry of Culture (OCW), which was continued in 2008 by the Nederlands Fonds voor Podiumkunsten+ (NFPK+).
A generous gift of the NAG (Dutch Acoustical Society), and a joint contribution of six well-known consulting firms of engineering, namely Cauberg-Huygen, DGMR, LBP | SIGHT, M+P, Peutz and Wijnia-Norman Partners (WNP) have made it possible to buy the Carrillo-piano. Almost half of the purchase price was donated by the Dutch Acoustical Society (NAG), the other half is collected by the consultants. This way the Carrillo-piano is retained for the Netherlands.

Cooperation with the Muziekgebouw aan 't IJ
We are very thankful for the great cooporation with the Muziekgebouw aan 't IJ.
This makes it possible to organize the Fokker organ concerts and other activities.
Thanks to the selfless commitment of M3H Architects, realistic drawings and simulations of the organ in the Small Hall (of the Muziekgebouw aan 't IJ) were made before the actual renovation of the Fokker organ took place. Also, M3H provided the Huygens-Fokker Foundation with technical advice on the construction.
