Duyfken 1606 Future Fund

To secure Duyfken's future and preserve her for future generations to enjoy, the Foundation has set up a Duyfken 1606 Future Fund.  

This fund will be operated as an endowment style fund, whereby a pool of funds is raised, in our case $500,000, which will then be invested professionally to attract the best returns possible with the smallest amount of risk, with the returns generated annually being either used for a designated purpose or to support general operations. If there is no requirement for such funds in a particular year, then they will be rolled back into the principal investment.

There are a number of ways in which you can do this:

  *   Include a one-off donation - you can contribute $10, $50, $100, $500 or even $1,606. This will be a tax-deductible donation.

  *   Participate as an Annual Giver, whereby you nominate a fixed amount to be deducted from your credit card each month over the next 12 or 24 months. This will be a tax-deductible donation.

  *   Consider Duyfken when framing your will, including the ship as a beneficiary. A gift in your will, however large or small, provides an enduring way of supporting the fine work that the Duyfken family undertake each and every day of the year.

Naturally any financial support you can provide in helping us to build the Duyfken 1606 Future Fund to the target of $500,000 will be greatly appreciated.
