Atos Foundation was established in 1982 as a Derde Wereld Fonds by some employees of BSO (Buro System Development). In the beginning, a number of children were sponsored through the Foster Parents Plan (later PLAN). After a few years all BSO colleagues were asked to donate via a monthly salary donation program. Thanks to the cooperation of the Director of BSO, Eckart Wintzen, the deposited funds were doubled for several years.
Following the acquisition of BSO by Origin we renamed the foundation to Derde Wereld Fonds Origin. In 1999 the activities were transferred to an independent foundation with only Atos Origin employees in the administration. Partly because of the transition from Atos Origin to Atos in 2012 the name was changed into Stichting Atos Foundation.
In July 2023, the Atos organization was split into 2 new organizations: Atos and Eviden. To secure the future, the foundation will be called Stichting Eviden Foundation. The statutes were changed accordingly on December 20, 2023.
