Organization Money Wise Platform
The platform Wijzer in geldzaken (Money Wise Platform) has around forty partners who have signed the partner agreement. A steering committee makes strategic choices and takes decisions for the group partnership. A management group, comprised of members of the steering committee, ensures that programmes and projects are run according to general strategy lines.
The projects are implemented by (combinations of) partners. A facilitating project bureau supports the steering committee, the management group and the partners, and ensures the realisation of several basic services.
Her Majesty Queen Máxima of the Netherlands has been Honorary Chair of the national partnership 'Money Wise Platform' since September 2010. In this capacity, the Queen seeks to draw attention to the importance of learning about financial matters and how to deal with money, especially in the case of children and young people. She acts as special advisor to the partnership and talks to interested parties on ways of increasing financial self-sufficiency. The Queen has been involved in the partnership's activities for some time now and, as Honorary Chair, underlines the importance of financial literacy and of working with partners to achieve it.
