The Anne Frank House is an independent organisation entrusted with the care of the Secret Annex, the place where Anne Frank went into hiding during World War II and where she wrote her diary. Our organisation brings Anne Frank’s life story to the attention of people all over the world to encourage them to reflect on the dangers of antisemitism, racism and discrimination and the importance of freedom, equal rights and democracy.

The Anne Frank House is almost entirely dependent on museum visits for its revenues: more than ninety-five percent of the annual budget is covered by proceeds generated by the museum. For the financing of the various large projects described in this overview of activities, our organisation relies on contributions from a variety of (granting) foundations, collaborating partners, friends and donors, and subsidies from funding institutions such as the European Union and the Dutch government.

In the Netherlands, the Anne Frank House (AFH), is supported by two independent non-profit organisations: the Stichting Vastgoed AFH (which manages and maintains the real estate properties used by the AFH) and the Stichting Vrienden van de AFS, (Friends of the AFH) who are there to provide financial support in the event of a (temporary) decline in revenues.
