How the efico fund deliberates


The Efico Fund, managed by the King Baudouin Foundation (KBF), is in charge of the financial part of the selection.
It gathers money from several sources of revenue (institutions, donations, coffee roasters, sales of Efico Foundation labelled coffee) to allocate to projects.
The projects themselves are being deliberated by:

A BOARD, appointed by the King Baudouin Foundation, that:

  • decides on the allocation of the Efico Fund’s financial resources
  • appoints the Jury members
  • launches requests for new projects
  • follows the Efico Fund’s operations
