Foundation Oranje Fonds is the result of the merger in 2002 of two foundations: Foundation Juliana Welzijn Fonds and Foundation Oranje Fonds. Juliana Welzijn Fonds was founded in 1948 in the day of the coronation of Queen Juliana. For more then 50 years the foundation has funded social projects. Foundation Oranje Fonds was founded as a present of the people of the Netherlands to crown prince Willem Alexander and princess Maxima at the occasion of their wedding in 2002. Both foundations, aimed at to support social projects, merged under taking the family name of the Dutch royal family - Van Oranje (of Orange). Crown prince Willem Alexander and princess Maxima are patrons of the Foundation.
