Finances

AmCham Belgium is a member-funded and member-led non-profit organization. We depend on annual membership dues, the generous support of our Strategic Sponsors as well as advertising and event sales to finance our operations; we do not accept subsidies from public authorities in order to maintain our independence. We are committed to transparency – also financial transparency – as part of our responsibility towards our members and as an actor in the public debate. Our annual accounts, summarized below, are available for consultation upon request.
