In total, the airport supported 17 projects this year. The other beneficiaries were Theatre 't Ros from Knegsel, Stichting Promotie Projecten in Leefbaar Liempde, holiday youth work Oostelbeers, Village Initiative Borkel & Schaft and the Eindhoven Maatjes.
This is the second year that the Eindhoven airport is promoting activities that connect people on a local level. Encouraging connections between people is the main aim of the Impact Fund. See this link for more information about the fund, which will continue to support local initiatives in 2024.
