Donors and Funds
In 1983, when Mama Cash started, she had access to the interest of an inheritance of 2,5 million guilders. Over the course of the years, many loyal and generous private donors gave money to Mama Cash, as well. Larger foundations and governments have also funded Mama Cash and have supported many of her grantees – groups that stand up for women’s rights. Likewise, the Nationale Postcode Loterij in the Netherlands trusts in Mama Cash’s approach and focus, and shows this with a substantial and flexible multi-year grant.
