The Hague Club
The Hague Club has its origins in discussions and meetings held in Europe in the 1960s, thanks to the efforts of a group of private foundations from the USA (Ford Foundation and Rockefeller Foundation) and Europe (Max Planck, Thyssen, Adriano Olivetti, Calouste Gulbenkian, Agnelli, Bernard Van Leer and Nuffield, among others).
It was formally established in 1971 during the International Foundations Meeting held in Turin at the behest of the Volkswagen Foundation (Germany), the Giovanni Agnelli Foundation (Italy), the Bernard van Leer Foundation (Netherlands) and the Wellcome Trust (UK). The Club takes its name from the Dutch city in which the preparatory meetings for its creation were held and aims to act as a forum for the discussion of issues relevant to foundations of international scope and of the role of philanthropy in the progress of contemporary societies.
