A project such as the “De Hoop” flour mill can only be realized with the help of subsidies and other funds. The foundation board therefore invests a lot of time and energy in finding the necessary financial support. The entire operation of the mill is run by volunteers for whom no one, including the board, receives any compensation.

You can financially support “De Hoop” flour mill in ‘t Zand by becoming a sponsor. You can visit the mill for free all year round during opening hours. “De Hoop” is happy with all contributions to the costs. You can register by sending an e-mail to You can also transfer a contribution to account number NL84RABO0147898323, stating Sponsorship ‘Molen de Hoop’ and your name and address. You will then receive the sponsor card at home.

For companies, “De Hoop” can be an interesting sponsor object: you support a good cause and at the same time perhaps you can add the costs as a tax deduction. Moreover, we offer you a suitable consideration. This can vary from mentioning the name on the sponsor board to fully organized tours of the mill for you and your guests. “De Hoop” offers tailor-made solutions. Send an e-mail to and we will contact you to discuss your wishes.
