Alert Fund for Youth (Alert) has held a unique and independent position in the Dutch and international funding scene since 1991. Alert is an independent fund, supporting progressive projects run by young people. Alert wants young activists to be heard better and more often, but thinks that only young people themselves can achieve this. That is why Alert supports national and international initiatives organized by young people with small subsidies. Alert is sustained by a group of enthusiastic board members, all volunteers and between 18 and 32 years old. Additionally, Alert has one paid employee, the Office Manager.
