COME Foundation consists of a Dutch board with five people, a committee and a few hundred individual financial contributors. The board of COME Foundation applies every year for funds from several Dutch foundations. In addition, the Foundation has several hundred individual contributors who yearly donate money for the work of COME. COME Foundation does not receive money from political organizations or governments, because we want to maintain our impartiality and be able to determine our own course.
The committee consists of two Dutch members (one of whom is the project leader) and a number of Israeli and Palestinian members. These ‘local committee members’ are former seminar participants and they change every few years. The committee is jointly responsible for preparing and implementing the program and for the recruitment, selection and preparation of the participants. The project leader functions as the bridge between the local committee and the Dutch board.
