Take action

Do you support the mission of Villa Vrede? Are you sympathetic with people in a difficult position in Utrecht? Then take action!
There are several ways in which you can commit yourself to Villa Vrede. You can read how below.


Villa Vrede is an independent foundation and isn’t part of the government. That is why we are largely dependent on funds and donations. Villa Vrede could not exist without generous donations from churches, funds and (regular) donors. That is why your help is desperately needed. All donations are welcome, but we prefer regular donations so that part of our budget is covered.

Via the button below you can support Villa Vrede once or periodically. You can also transfer money directly to account number: NL 48 TRIO 0197 6989 48 in name of Stichting Villa Vrede.

Become volunteer

With only two paid employees, Villa Vrede runs largely on volunteers. There are no fewer than around 60 volunteers who keep Villa Vrede running. This varies from board members, to bicycle repairers, to language teachers, to fund recruiters, to hosts/hostesses. We are almost always looking for new volunteers. Do you want to know what you can do for us? The button below will take you to the open volunteer vacancies. Do you have a good idea of how you can contribute to Villa Vrede? Then contact us.

Donate goods

Villa Vrede is grateful for things that people regularly bring by. We especially need:

– bicycles

– long lasting food/drinks

If you are unsure whether we can use your goods, please contact us.
