Since 2003, the Orange Fund has awarded its annual award, the Apples of Orange, to three organizations in the field.
The purpose of Orange Apples is:
‘To promote social welfare and social cohesion by awarding a prize for organizations that work within the scope of the Orange Fund for a viable society and improving social cohesion between different groups.’
This extraordinarily honorable prize consists of a bronze statue of an Orange Orange, made by Princess Beatrix and a cash amount of € 15,000, =. The Orange Apples are presented in May at Noordeinde Palace by our guardian Queen Máxima. In lustrums, King Willem-Alexander awarded the prize.
An apple of Orange is first and foremost an appreciation for the work and the commitment of the winning organization. In addition, it is intended to inspire others to create similar initiatives.
