Giving people opportunities. That is the mission of the VandenEnde Foundation, the private cultural fund set up by Joop and Janine van den Ende. Since 2001 Foam is one of the cultural institutions that has been supported by the VandenEnde Foundation. Its main objective is to foster interest in culture and to encourage cultural entrepreneurship. The VandenEnde Foundation therefore gives talented young people an opportunity to grow in their careers by awarding them study and working grants. The VandenEnde foundation is also the main founder of the DeLaMar Theatre in Amsterdam.
