Together with the support of 1500 Friends, the Residentie Orkest stands strong. The objective of the Friends Association is to foster the growth of The Residentie Orkest and to facilitate a good relationship between the orchestra and the audience. In practice, this means that the Friends contribute to the development of educational initiatives, innovative/original concert series, and the acquisition and maintenance of instruments. Without the Friends, some of these projects would not have been possible. The Residentie Orkest is therefore very grateful for the support of such a large group of Friends.
Special activities are organised annually for members of the Friends Association.
The Friends of the Residentie Orkest Association is a cultural Public Benefit Organisation (Dutch: ANBI). This means that the association does not pay gift or inheritance tax.

The Friends of the Residentie Orkest Association supports Residentie Orkest in helping it excel as an orchestra representing The Hague locally and outside of the city. Residentie Orkest has taken an important role upon itself in reaching and connecting all the residents and visitors to The Hague. In this way, Residentie Orkest is the perfect match for The Hague: the international, diplomatic, political and royal city at the sea.
