Diwali Festival Foundation
The Dwaili Festival Foundation aims to organize India-oriented events on a regular basis in order to strengthen the bond between the Indian and Dutch communities.
Main features of the policy:
The Diwali Festival Foundation organizes an annual festival. The next festival takes place on the 7th of October. The details of the festival are published on the other parts of this website.
The Diwali Festival Foundation finances the costs of the festival through sponsorship of institutions and companies as well as a small part from the income of sale of refreshments by third parties during the festival. The festival will only proceed if the budgeted costs are covered out of the sponsorship. The Diwali Festival Foundation does not seek a capital surplus and is using all profits of the festival for the organization of the next festival.
