Foundation Heerlijkheid Brederode
In 2013, as a result of cutting of funds, the Brederode Castle was under the threat of closure to the public. To prevent this, the Foundation Heerlijkheid Brederode was established, so that the ruin could happily remain open. Since then, the foundation has been responsible for daily management with the help of volunteers and without structural funding. Since 2017, two managers have also been appointed.
Foundation Heerlijkheid Brederode is a non-profit foundation and is registered with the Chamber of Commerce in Amsterdam under Number 57790736.
