Who we are

CEDE Aruba is a dynamic community foundation, supporting nonprofits in Aruba since 1986. We provide grants, help non-profits in the development of projects and bring together organizations to improve cooperation. In addition, CEDE Aruba has built a network with national and international funding agencies and companies. The working areas include neighborhood development, volunteer work, family support, enrichment programs for children and youngsters, active aging, protections of vulnerable groups and capacity building of non-profits.

CEDE Aruba also carries out some initiatives, such as Aruba DOET (National Volunteer Day), Volunteer of the Year Awards (VOTY), Erasmus plus (International Youth Exchanges and Volunteer programs) , PITCH TIME (Youth Pitch Program to local Companies), ORG.aw (Community Guide and Volunteer Platform) and the Happy Community Initiative (Visitor Charity Program).

CEDE Aruba will make sure that 100% of the donations are used by local non-profits whose efforts are consistent with the Happy To Give Back campaign. CEDE Aruba is a dynamic community foundation, supporting nonprofits in Aruba since 1986, and CEDE performs its duties without taking any money from the donated funds. CEDE will coordinate the efforts among the local volunteer groups so as to reach the most people possible with the greatest impact and not duplicate efforts. Also, CEDE will check upon the quality and transparency of the finances of those receiving your charitable donations. This way every you can be assured that the donations will hit its goal.
