The Good Roll Foundation
Why don't you take a look at our brand new Foundation website!
The Good Roll Foundation aims to make sustainable sanitary facilities available to everyone. Our Foundation is there to ensure that the money we raise from the sales of our toilet rolls is actually building sanitation units without making profit.
Every year, The Good Roll donates 50% of its net profit to building toilets in places that currently lack basic access to safe and clean sanitation. This is the (net) profit that remains after our costs have been deducted. We do this because we believe in fighting the good fight, aiming to maximise the donation to The Good Roll Foundation for the construction of toilets. We fix our overhead costs to a maximum of 30%. If the costs exceed this 30%, the extra costs will be deducted from our profit share and will not be deducted of the Foundation. In this way, we remain fully focused on our mission- to build toilets and to improve human lives in places lacking access to clean sanitary facilities. In essence, we give a shit!
Each financial year, we publish our financial annual figures and these are confirmed by an accountant. The donation goes to our Foundation, which distributes it among our projects with various local organisations. Our impact meter shows how many toilets we already have built and those that are in the process of being built. Even though our impact meter is partially fictional, it offers a good picture of our mission, our current projects and insights into our state of affairs while we are preparing our annual figures.
Because of our positive impact on people and the planet, The Good Roll Foundation recently received the ANBI status, awarded to public benefit companies focussing at least 90% of their efforts on the general good.

Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
SDGs & The Good Roll
With the Good Roll we contribute mainly to the UN Sustainable Development Goal number 6, clean water and sanitation for everyone by 2030. We believe clean drinking water and clean sanitation have a positive impact on other Sustainable Development Goals, such as food safety, education and health. Clean toilets in schools ensure that more girls continue going to school, even when they have their period. Besides, children become less susceptible to diseases, both of which result in a more educated youth which will be better equipped to contribute to the economy.
Millions of people still die every year from diseases caused by poor sanitation and this has a direct impact on the local economy. Currently, 1.8 billion people still get their drinking water from polluted sources and an additional 2.4 billion people still have no access to clean toilets and other sanitary facilities.
A lot of waste products are still thrown away in bodies of water. To improve the quality of water across the globe, this form of pollution must stop and waste water must be purified. All countries should have a properly functioning water management system, if feasible, by 2030.
