At the heart of society

Connecting the Netherlands

KPN connects people. We’ve been doing this for over 130 years through our products and services as well as by supporting socially responsible activities. We focus on initiatives that connect Dutch people with each other: our national cultural heritage and skating. We focus extra attention on vulnerable groups in society, such as the elderly and chronically ill children. KPN Mooiste Contact Fonds brings them in contact with the world around them.

Culture

Kpn Rijksmuseum Loop
Rijksmuseum

It belongs to us all

The collection of the country's most important museum is a source of pride and a national treasure. As lead sponsor, KPN regularly contributes to making these artworks accessible for everyone in the Netherlands. Also digitally.


Concertgebouw

Music connects. That’s why we support the Royal Concertgebouw in Amsterdam by contributing our services. Via the KPN Mooiste Contact Fonds, we’re helping vulnerable groups in society get acquainted with classical music.

Sponsor and fan of skating throughout the Netherlands

When it's freezing, the Dutch thaw out. Because skating has such a power to connect, KPN is lead sponsor of the KNSB (Royal Dutch Skating Association). We’re giving all skating lovers a helping hand: from professionals like Sven Kramer to natural ice skaters and children trying skating for the first time.

TEAMKPN Sports Fund

Not all national team sports are given the same opportunities, despite some great achievements. The TEAMKPN Sports Fund is especially for these promising teams. It gives them the financial support needed to be able to excel.

KPN Mooiste Contact Fonds

Hello, is anyone there?

Social contact is important to all of us, but it is not a given for everyone. The KPN Mooiste Contact Fonds brings people who feel lonely in contact with the world around them again. 

KlasseContact

With KlasseContact, we’re ensuring that chronically ill children can stay in touch with their class. With the help of a laptop at home or in the hospital and a smart ICT set in the class, sick children can still join in.

Zilverlijn

The KPN-volunteers from Zilverlijn phone weekly elderly people in need of a good conversation. For a chat, or for a laugh. That is badly needed: The Netherlands has about 200,000 extremely lonely old people. The Zilverlijn is an initiative of KPN and the National Fund for the Elderly.

Promoting social contact and combating loneliness amongst the elderly are at the heart of the KPN Mooiste Contact Days. They are invited for a special day in, for example, the Rijksmuseum or Thialf.

Aware of the potential and the risks

The digital world offers endless possibilities. Unfortunately, there are also dangers. By participating in a number of information campaigns, we’re making a wide public aware of the potential risks. For example, we’re involved in campaigns like Boefproof, Veilig Verkeer Nederland (Traffic Safety Netherlands) and Alert Online.

Protecting young users

Internet enriches the lives of children too. Movies, games and apps help them discover the world. For a long time we have been making sure that they do so safely and responsibly.
