The fund is supervised under the responsibility of the Board of the Foundation (Stichting) Refo500. Requests for support will be evaluated by a committee consisting of the director, the director of operations, and the treasurer of Refo500, after obtaining the advice of a member of the Board of RefoRC. In his annual financial report, the treasurer will provide an annual accounting to the Board of Refo500.
