Nicolaas G. Pierson

The Foundation is named in honour of the philanthropist Nicolaas G. Pierson, who passed away on 12th August 2007 at the age of 53. Pierson strongly believed in the return of social justice in politics and an ethical revival with respect to animals, nature and the environment. The significant financial support he gave to the Party for the Animals was an important factor in its breakthrough into the Dutch parliament.
