Title Philantrophy in the Golden Age Degree of recognition Regional Media name/outlet Radio Swammerdam (Amsterdam FM) Media type Radio Country Netherlands Date 7/05/17 Description In the Dutch Republic (1588-1795) a large proportion of poor relief was financed through collection gifts. In many cities door-to-door collections took place weekly and money was also raised during church services.
In her thesis she examined how secular and religious authorities managed to raise high and relatively stable amounts for charitable causes year after year. Teeuwen analysed the policies of both city councils and church boards that organized these collections, as well as the population’s giving behaviour.
