This is how we get our money

Inspire2Live is a voluntary organisation, whose staff is not compensated for their activities.

To be able to pay them, we rely upon donations. Some of these come from philanthropists and others from organisations that want to support our work. Our Annual Congresses, for example, have been supported in the past by the Dutch Cancer Organisation and CZ, a health insurance company.

We also get donations from other organisations. Two beautiful examples are:

  • € 110.000 from a fundraiser who believes in the work of Inspire2Live
  • € 150.000 from a small not-for-profit pharmaceutical company that also believed in Inspire2Live and stopped their own activities.

In 2023 we started to raise funds from the industry for our Annual Congress. This appeared to be successful. We could finance with these funds our congress. In 2024 we will continue doing this.

The out-of-pocket costs, e.g. venue, catering and hotel, airline tickets, photography, are covered by donations.


Our spending

We spend our money in bringing together stakeholders in the medical industrial complex via congresses, symposia and Discovery Networks.

Many initiatives have arisen from activities mentioned before.. You can find them in our achievements.
