We are of and for Egmond people, for young and old, rich and poor. PostaanZee wants to move people, connect people and be a place of meaning.
The former VVV office at 82a Voorstraat is our bustling home. A place for education, recreation, creativity and, above all, socializing.

To promote the well-being of the residents of the three Egmonds and to create meaning for all who are involved. The foundation seeks to achieve its goal, among other things, by operating a meeting center in Egmond aan Zee and organizing activities that get people moving, connect with each other and combat loneliness. The activities organized are open to everyone, regardless of origin, religion, orientation, race, age and social position. The foundation is non-profit and dedicated to the common good.
PostaanZee is all about civil society; active citizenship, reducing social isolation, fostering social cohesion and being able to live longer in the neighborhood because local residents take care of each other. As PostaanZee pursues this idea of a civil society, the volunteers also take care of each other and the visitors and participants. Participating longer in society by staying active and involved yourself seems to work within PostaanZee.
It is not the building or the meeting center but the local residents and volunteers who make PostaanZee. In essence, PostaanZee encourages and creates a Civil Society, through the participation and activation of residents. Here PostaanZee is “only” a means, a hub to distribute services to each other so that every citizen and local resident can “participate. PostaanZee shows the municipality how to build the infrastructure for the Wmo from active citizenship and how to combine it sustainably with care (AWBZ) and prevention (first line, Zvw).
PostaanZee is the place where people can feel at home and meet. The place where care and welfare activities and services are offered, where social bonding is encouraged at the neighborhood level and where partitions between organizations, institutions, businesses, entrepreneurs and neighborhood residents are removed through cooperation between these parties. Recurring key idea is the active involvement and participation of local residents and the very defining role played by many volunteers.
The Foundation works with volunteers with support from a paid staff. The foundation’s directors and volunteer staff receive no compensation for their work. Reimbursement is only possible for expenses actually incurred and demonstrated. All expenses incurred and demonstrated to be related to volunteering may be reimbursed, subject to prior agreement with the foundation staff member. However, this does mean that all expenses must be demonstrable through supporting documents, receipts and claims. By costs, you can think of expenses such as paper, ink cartridges, stamps, ed. The foundation employs 1 paid employee. The paid employee is funded from equity.
At meeting center PostaanZee, everyone is welcome. We are easily accessible by bicycle, walking and public transportation. People with (temporary) difficulty walking can be dropped off at the door. We are easily accessible.
