The Good Roll Foundation

Take a look at our brand new Foundation website!

The Good Roll Foundation has one goal: to make sustainable sanitation available.

Our Foundation was established to spend the money we raise through the sale of our rolls on the construction of sanitation, without making a profit in the process.

Each year, The Good Roll donates 50% of its net profit to the construction of toilets in developing countries. This is the net profit, i.e. the profit that remains after the costs incurred (personnel, office) have been deducted.

We believe in our entrepreneurship. We would like to reserve a maximum amount for the donation to our foundation and for our cooperation with SIMAVI. All for the construction of toilets. Therefore we have fixed our "overhead costs" to a maximum of 30%. If the costs exceed 20%, the extra costs will be deducted from our profit share and will not be charged to our Foundation.

In this way we remain fully focused on our mission: building toilets and improving people's lives in countries where they lack these basic facilities.

We give a shit!

Every financial year, we publish our annual financial statements. The donation goes to our Foundation, which distributes it over our own projects and for example collaborations with SIMAVI. Our impact meter shows how many toilets we have built and will build. This impact meter is therefore partly fictitious. It does, however, give a good picture of our mission, the current projects and what the counter will look like when we draw up our annual figures.

Because of our positive impact on people and the planet, The Good Roll Foundation recently received ANBI status 8588 94 178. This certificate is awarded to non-profit organisations that direct at least 90% of their efforts towards the common good.

Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

SDGs & The Good Roll

With the Good Roll we contribute mainly to the UN Sustainable Development Goal number 6, clean water and sanitation for everyone by 2030. We believe clean drinking water and clean sanitation have a positive impact on other Sustainable Development Goals, such as food safety, education and health. Clean toilets in schools ensure that more girls continue going to school, even when they have their period. Besides, children become less susceptible to diseases, both of which result in a more educated youth which will be better equipped to contribute to the economy.

Millions of people still die every year from diseases caused by poor sanitation and this has a direct impact on the local economy. Currently, 1.8 billion people still get their drinking water from polluted sources and an additional 2.4 billion people still have no access to clean toilets and other sanitary facilities.

A lot of waste products are still thrown away in bodies of water. To improve the quality of water across the globe, this form of pollution must stop and waste water must be purified. All countries should have a properly functioning water management system, if feasible, by 2030.
