The policy plan aims to take initiatives and actions, which implement the objectives of the organisation. In broad lines it concerns the selection of options through which the objectives, with the means available, can be realised most effectively. 

The policy plan aims to take initiatives and actions, which implement the objectives of the organisation. In broad lines it concerns the selection of options through which the objectives, with the means available, can be realised most effectively. 
Apart from the already pledged donations, funds will be actively raised from those supportive of the world of music and other sources. There will be an active public relations campaign to bring the Jans Pustjens Foundation to the attention of a wide public with a particular effort to do this outside the traditional circles of classical music. 

The raising of funds to support each of the activities to be developed will initially be focused individually on the group targeted to participate in that activity’s realisation. Various additional target groups in the world of classical music, orchestras and educational institutions and their followers will be approached so as to gain further support for the organisation in the wider sense. In this way the foundation seeks a solid basis to ensure the continuity of future activities. 

The website will serve to give interested parties the opportunity to submit proposals or applications. The assessment of applications, proposals and contributions submitted collectively or by individuals, will be done by the board.
This assessment will be based on the criteria set out in the objectives and will consider desirability and financial and practical feasibility.

Projects that are approved will be given active guidance and supervision including progress reports and ongoing assessments by the administration.

Since May 9 the Jan Pustjens Foundation has been located at:
Plantage Parklaan 12
1018 ST Amsterdam

During the tropical month of June, with its heavy rainfall and the first severe summer storms, we sent you the ‘save the date’ for the 5th Jan Pustjens Focus Day on Sunday 26 January 2020 in the Bernard Haitinkzaal of the Conservatorium van Amsterdam.

We have already had tropical days, heavy rainfall and the first severe storms: harbingers of the coming summer time. This newsletter is a harbinger of the 5th Jan Pustjens Focus Day.

In 2018, The Jan Pustjens Foundation visited the TROMP percussion competition to hand out a special prize to further support a young talent.
The prize was given to Elliott Gaston-Ross! We would like to wish him all the best in his promising career and musical journey!
