Strategic Financial Partners & Donors
2012 -2013 : CVC Capital Partners has been TADA’s main corporate partner from the start. This company and mainly the Belgian branch of CVC – with at the lead Geert Duyck - made the launch of TADA possible. AXA Belgium, Bain & Company Belgium and Ernst & Young Belgium equally supported TADA from the very beginning. The King Baudouin Foundation offered TADA in 2012 moral support by assigning TADA’s founder an award for being a promising social entrepreneur.
2015-2016: TADA opens a new antenna thanks to the foundation Bernheim, wich became an essential partner. A few anonymous philantrophists, Janssen Pharmaceutica, TotalEnergies and the Rotary club from Sint-Genesius-Rode also contribute to TADA’s intense growth.
2016-2017 : Foundations such as Jean-François Peterbroeck, Poussière d’Etoiles and Butterfly start endorsing TADA. Meanwhile, TADA gets an increasing number of gifts gathered by organizations that helped TADA by organizing a fundraising event: a marathon, a company party, a golf competition, a gala dinner, you name it. Telenet starts sponsoring TADA.
2017-2018 : The Flemish minister of education, Hilde Crevits (CD&V), grants TADA public support. According to the minister, «TADA deserves a push in the back as this amazing, inspirational network – carried by the private sector – must continue to exist and get all chances to grow ».
2018- 2019: TADA opens a fourth antenna en gets the support of the US Embassy. Other new partners of TADA since 2018-2019 are Spring and Immobel foundations.

To carry out its actions, TADA can count on the financial support of many donors (individuals, companies, foundations, etc.)
Creating social benefits represents a significant cost for TADA: in 2019-2020, we spent 1,794,600 euros. Every year the number of young people we support increases, and so does our spending. The whole challenge for a non-profit organization like TADA is to raise the necessary budget for the following school year during the current year. This is essential to guarantee the continuity of the non-profit organization, for teenagers and for the TADA team.
So you know where the money in our bank account is going: it is not a financial buffer, but mainly next year's budget.
Time & In Kind Donations
TADA exists thanks to the help of thousands of volunteers.
They teach at TADA or help us minimize overheads costs by offering pro-bono consultancy. Bain & Company offers TADA for instance strategic support, whereas Allen & Overy takes care of legal advice, free of charge off course.
Diverse organizations support TADA also in kind. The city Council of Sint-Joost-ten-Node and Molenbeek make sure TADA gets free-of-charge access to the public schools for instance, whereas AXA Belgium offered the TADA-team an office in AXA’s Belgian headquarters.
