Most private foundations wish to and hope to make a difference when they support non-profit projects at home and abroad. For VILLUM FONDEN, a major Danish foundation created by the man behind the roof window VELUX, it is especially important to make a difference in the communities where production and sales of many thousands of VELUX windows takes place. Particularly in a number of Central and Eastern European countries that do not experience the same prosperity as we do in Denmark.
