Foundation Heerlijkheid Brederode

Foundation Heerlijkheid Brederode (SHB) is the tenant of Brederode Castle. In 2013 Brederode Castle was threatened to be closed to visitors because of a subsidy stop. To prevent this, the Foundation Heerlijkheid Brederode was established, so the castle could remain open to the public.
The managers and volunteers of the foundation keep the castle open to the public and maintain the premises.

Foundation Heerlijkheid Brederode is a non-profit organisation and is registered with the Chamber of Commerce in Amsterdam under Number 57790736.
