About the Project

King Baudouin Foundation (FRB): Working together for a better society

The King Baudouin Foundation’s mission is to contribute to a better society.

The Foundation is an actor for change and innovation, serving the public interest and increasing social cohesion in Belgium and Europe. We seek to maximise our impact by strengthening the capacity of organisations and individuals. We also stimulate effective philanthropy by individuals and corporations.

The King Baudouin Foundation is a public benefit foundation. The Foundation was set up in 1976 on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of King Baudouin's reign.

As a foundation, funding is always at the forefront of management’s concerns. Since 1999, the King Baudouin Foundation has entrusted Benoît van Wassenhove from Expense Reduction Analysts with regular projects for overhead cost categories. 

FRB is a true example of how a relationship of trust transforms the role of the consultant into that of a trusted advisor.

 

What the client says

“For years the King Baudouin Foundation makes an appeal to Expense Reduction Analysts to analyse its general logistic costs and to look for the best prices. We are satisfied with our suppliers and their pricing. Comparing prices on a regular basis is useful to meet new players and/or to negotiate better prices.”

 

What Expense Reduction Analysts says

“Over the past 17 years, we have managed many projects for the King Baudouin Foundation; these are not big budgets, but they bring regular savings that help support the charity’s many activities. The successive projects have been achieved in a pleasant relationship of mutual trust.”
