Mark Ørberg

The dissertation – titled Foundation Law and The Living Charter – contains a legal analysis of Danish foundation law concerning the purposes and objectives of Danish foundations covered by the foundation acts. I consider which interpretive methods or »tools« one should or must apply whilst reading the purpose expressed in a foundation’s charter (by-laws). Next, I consider settled/prevailing law in terms of the purpose amendment threshold (formålsændringskriteriet) and identify the factors that are permissible or mandatory in the application of the purpose amendment threshold. The dissertation draws inspiration from Norwegian, Swedish and Finnish foundation law, and it includes a vast amount of cases from the Danish authorities issuing administrative decisions on foundation law. Thus, the dissertation provides a theoretical and practical contribution to Danish foundation law and the framework conditions for the Danish foundation’s philanthropic activities.
