Disability Sports Foundation
BDO is partner of the Dutch Disabled Sports Foundation (Fonds Gehandicaptensport). This foundation developed the concept of 1% FairShare® to improve the disadvantaged position of disability sports in the Netherlands. This scheme allows businesses to invest 1% above their total sport sponsoring budget in disability sports. This one percent is more than a symbolic figure: exactly 1% of sporting people in the Netherlands are disabled.
By sponsoring the Disability Sports Foundation, BDO supports referees within various disability sports, including wheelchair hockey. This target group fits in perfectly with BDO's sponsoring of top sport and grassroots sport (Ajax and the Royal Dutch Hockey Federation (KNHB) respectively. The partnership shows we want to support all sports and sports people in the Netherlands.
