The Poul Due Jensen Foundation’s philanthropic activities are divided into three main areas: Water, Research and Inclusion.

Based on our philanthropic strategy, we seek out partners to collaborate with.

In collaboration with experienced international NGOs’ the Foundation strives to provide access to safe drinking water for the world’s poorest in rural communities and forgotten refugee camps.

We insist that projects and programmes are environmentally, socially and financially sustainable. The Foundation therefore stays committed until we are convinced that each water project can ensure operation and maintenance in the long run.

In collaboration with selected universities, the Foundation wants to build and strengthen research environments within selected technical research disciplines and natural science.

In general, applied research receives significant funding through public research grants and industry collaboration; however, it is dependent on the knowledge produced by basic research. The Foundation has therefore decided to focus its funding on the areas of basic and use-inspired basic research.

The Foundation works to promote labour market inclusion in the Central Denmark Region. We believe that having a connection to the labour market is important in order to safeguard and develop social cohesion, individual well-being and creating value for society.

We wish to see more people in meaningful jobs and fewer people spending their adult life on public benefits. In order to make the necessary lasting changes, we support strategic partnerships and networks within the region.
