There are many ways in which you can collaborate with Delft MaMa and all of the wonderful activities and services that we provide to international families in Delft and surrounds.
Delft MaMa is celebrating our 15th birthday in 2022! In 2007, we registered as a not for profit organisation with the Dutch Chamber of Commerce, and have been connecting international families in Delft and surrounds ever since, and relying on donations and sponsorships to do so.
We are grateful to our talented team of volunteers who donate their time, however we also rely on financial donations for our operational costs. All and any amounts are gratefully received via our bank account below.
Delft MaMa is an official Dutch “Stichting” (not for profit) and are very transparent about our use of any funding. If you would like further information, please contact us.
Some examples of our recurring or one-off expenses are:
- Website hosting
- Bank fees
- Tea/coffee/biscuits for our playgroups
- Insurance to cover our volunteers
- Printing flyers to ensure more people know about our community
- Renting space for events such as our Halloween get together
- Flowers for condolences or congratulations for significant events for volunteers or community members
- Small appreciation gifts for our volunteers or to cover their expenses incurred
- Legal fees relating to becoming/remaining an official not for profit organisation
We do not yet qualify for ANBI status (which would make donations tax deductible), and cannot provide a receipt, but we are currently working on this. If this is important to you, please let us know. Our team can certainly check and confirm if the amount has been received if you contact us. We get very excited seeing donations appear in our bank account! A huge thank you in advance.
You can scan the QR code below, or click on the “donate” button to be taken to a screen with a default amount of 10 euros, which can be changed to more or less if you wish. This is for payments from Dutch bank accounts. You can also manually enter our IBAN bank account number to pay from anywhere in the world.

… Well then, you have the potential to become a Delft MaMa volunteer!
Delft MaMa is run by a team of talented and dedicated volunteers, eager to participate in projects and give a little bit (or a lot) of our time and expertise – and then go the extra mile too! We organize different activities with a wide range of purposes: give workshops, coordinate playgroups and other social and business meetings, all with the common goal of connecting international families in Delft and surrounds.
As it takes time to onboard and train our volunteers, we ask that you intend to commit for a minimum of 2 hours a week over at least 3 months. We do understand of course that parents in particular require flexibility and are happy to discuss what may work best for you! Just contact us for a chat.
The list below aims to give an overview of current vacancies, as well as roles already filled – though we are always looking for motivated people to join our team, so we would love to hear from you! For some roles you can click for a role description, others we are still working on. These are also flexible, so contact us if you would like to know more, or have ideas of how you may be able to contribute.
You can fill in the online application below or download it here: DMM Volunteer Form. Fill in your info and email it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We aim to respond within a week.
Click on each role for more information – please note we are updating these and open to feedback and ideas. There is room for flexibility to adapt the role to suit your availability, your skills and those you may like to learn. As a small team, we are not able to offer extensive training and supervision, but have regular meetings and learn a lot from each other. We are (almost) all parents, many of us with part time or full time jobs as well, so these roles are built around being flexible to fit in with you and your family.
Some roles do not yet have a description, contact us to discuss. Even roles that are filled often may still have an upcoming opportunity so please still let us know if you are interested. See the about page for the current team.
