The organisation

Since August 2002 the Roparun organisation has consisted of two foundations: Roparun Events Foundation and Roparun Palliative Care Foundation. The foundations are separate; each conducts its own accounting and they also have different bank accounts for instance.

Because of the division, the cash flows are clear: money intended for organising the event and money intended for the causes. Should something happen due to circumstances at the Roparun Events Foundation, this will never have any effect on the money reserved for the causes in the Roparun Palliative Care Foundation, or on the agreements that have been made with various partners. The separation also guarantees that regardless of what happens, everything intended for the causes reaches the causes.

Each foundation has its own board; these boards are as follows:
