"Working together to make a positive contribution to society"
At Exact we strongly feel that we must give back to society. To really make a difference, we have identified this is one of our strategic initiatives. From the intrinsic desire to do good, the Exact Foundation was founded in February 2019.
Through the Foundation, we aim to provide equal opportunities for all by supporting unique learning and education initiatives. By doing this, we help people making progress in life, regardless of their origin, culture, religion, gender or sexual preference.
To execute on our mission, we partner with or (financially) support organisations that share our ambition.
The Exact Foundation believes in equal opportunities for all. By supporting unique learning & education initiatives, we help people who need them to make progress in life.
Working together to make a positive contribution to society, that is the goal of the Exact Foundation. It is important to give back to the society we live and work in. We pursue equal chances and by giving people access to education we can help them get more opportunities in life, escape poverty and increase self-worth.
TechMeUp believes that education should be accessible to everyone, regardless of your situation! That's why, together with our partners, we try to create a more diverse and inclusive tech ecosystem. TechMeUp enables an interest-free tuition advance for students who cannot afford their education. They pay back this advance the moment they find a job. This allows students to keep their lives and education going while they study.
HackYourFuture is a coding school for people that have limited access to education and the labor market. During an intensive training program of 9 months the students are trained for a successful start in the technology sector.
The Exact Foundation supports HackYourFuture since January 2020.
In February 2019, the Exact Foundation was officially launched. In 2020, the focus was on increasing the foundation's name recognition and disbursing the first funds to suitable projects and charities. In 2021 we continued to support the partnerships we started in 2020. Furthermore, during that year, the foundation started focused on shaping a long-term vision and goal. As a result, we decided in 2021 to discontinue a couple of initiatives for 2022. We also redesigned our mission in early 2022, which gives us more opportunities to realise our ambitions. In the second half of 2022, we will be looking for a few new projects to support.
