Dag S. Stiansen has established Dag S. Stiansens Stiftelse, with the purpose of protecting animal interests. The Foundation is now formally approved by the Registration Authority and registered in The Brønnøysund Register Centre.
Each year the Foundation will distribute the Stiansen Award to individuals and/or organizations that have made an extraordinary effort to help animals over the past year. The foundation will also provide financial support to projects that promote animal rights.
– The animals are among the weakest in our society, since they are unable to speak up for themselves. My wife and I have long had a strong commitment to animal welfare. With this foundation we want to give something back to the community by providing support to those who work for animal interests, says Dag S. Stiansen.
The winner of the Stiansen Award and the projects that will be supported will be determined by the board of the Foundation. The board will receive assistance from an expert council. The Foundation’s council shall be composed of people who have good knowledge about the work of animal rights.
Dag S. Stiansen Stiftelse was established to administer the proprietorship of the Stiansen Eiendom companies after the owner himself has passed away. Ever since Dag S. Stiansen’s will of 1986, Dag S. Stiansen has wanted to establish a foundation. The Foundation is set to be funded by cash deposits and shares from the real estate company Stiansen Eiendom. Dag Stiansen and his wife Trine have, with the exception of the legal share of the inheritance received by Dag S. Stiansen heirs, willed all their assets to the foundation.
