In North Holland, anyone can participate

A vibrant social life in North Holland is back, and everyone is invited! The Anyone Can Participate fund, of Hollands Kroonse Uitdaging and Microsoft was open for applications during April and May 2023.

The Hollands Kroonse Challenge brings businesses together with foundations and associations to support many social activities—from talent development to cultural awareness to outdoor exercise.

The Hollands Kroonse Challenge disperses funds among the approved applicants for month-long activities. The goals include reducing loneliness and substance abuse, and increasing self-reliance and an inclusive social environment for everyone in the community. The Anyone Can Participate fund was created to ensure that no one is excluded because of a lack of financial resources.

Organizations interested in applying for next year’s funding can learn more on the Hollands Kroonse Challenge website at
