Ad hoc Financial partners
TADA’s Ad Hoc Partners are organizations that make a gift once a year or ad hoc, for example by granting TADA an award or by organizing a fundraiser: a marathon, a company party, a golf competition, a gala dinner, you name it.
TADA’s biggest ad hoc financial partners since 2013 are the Engie Foundation, SdWorx, KBC, vzw Solidarité Cistercienne and BNP Parisbas. The National Lottery and numerous foundations that act under the banner of the King Baudouin Foundation offered TADA relevant ad hoc support during the last school years.

The Rotary club of ‘Sint-Genesius-Rode’ is another important ad hoc partner of TADA since 2014. This organization supports TADA both financially and in kind. In 2015 they organized a wonderful gala dinner for TADA. Some of the Rotary members also participate on a yearly basis in the TADA course ‘entrepreneurship’.
The practical, non-financial support of organizations and individuals means a lot to TADA. Several organizations provide TADA with material, non-financial support such as free office space or IT infrastructure. The municipality of Sint-Joost-ten-Node for example supports TADA by giving free access to the municipal primary school ‘Sint-Joost-aan-Zee’. Panos supports TADA by delivering sandwiches for volunteers.
More and more organizations support TADA via ‘capacity building’ or ‘venture philanthropy’. You can read more about it here.
