With ‘Hoge Hoed’, the Port Authority stimulates employees to volunteer for and support social, sports and cultural projects in their spare time. Employees who do this can request Port Authority support. The Executive Board recently announced which fifteen employee voluntary activities and hobbies were selected randomly for a donation. This enables Port Authority to reach a decision on the countless requests for support it receives from an extremely wide range of associations. In principle, only regional organisations in which employees are actively involved are eligible for support.
