Also known as FVF, the Florimond Volckaert Fund was named in 1954 to honour the founder and first President of the Skål Movement. It assists Skål members financially in times of need or distress.
Skål members worldwide receive grants of loans from the FVF for wide-ranging reasons. For example, the Fund has covered (but not limited to) surgical and hospital expenses for unemployed Skalleagues or partners; financed education for orphaned children of Skål members; paid for equipment to improve the quality of life for the housebound; assisted individuals during natural disasters; and scores of other personal (not business) needs.
The FVF is available in times of reduced income, serious or prolonged illness, medical intervention not covered by insurance and other justifiable circumstances approved by the FVF Trustees, as defined by the By-Laws. Full FVF details and procedures are available on the Skål Net, http://www.skal.org.
Skål International Thailand has allocated an amount of US$ 250.00 annually for contribution to projects to raise funds such as production of the Skål Cook Book or the Silent Auction or donation of the whole amount to FVF.
"I never believe, in all my years in Skål, participating in collecting funds for the FVF, that one day I would be on the receiving end. This has brought home to me just how important the Fund is and how we must work together to ensure that it continues" from an FVF recipient.
