On 10 October 2011, the foundation Stichting 't Walvisvaarders Huisje was set up. The aim of the foundation is the preservation of the historico-cultural value of 't Walvisvaarders Huisje, the further development and documentation of the history of the house and its residents, and the support of making the house and its history accessible to the public.
Furthermore, it is the foundation's goal to assemble fundings in order to make all this possible. The foundation is also busy with applying for subsidies and it manages the contributions for visits of the house and donations in order to make this house accessible for the public and preserve this unique monument.
The listed building is registered under monument number 35243.

The restauration of 2016-2017 was financed by substantial contributions by Stichting Loodsen door het Landschap (financed by Waddenfonds and Provincie Noord-Holland) and Mr. Jan Willem Baerveldt Fonds (part of Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds).
Since 2012, we have received generous contributions by STIFTexel, Texelfonds, Texel 600, RABO Noord-Holland Noord, LIONS and VSB-fonds. Thanks to these contributions, we were able to acquire glass cabinets, a bookcase and various objects for the collection and we were able to restore a wood stove and set up a website.
We are also very grateful for the private financial donations we have received over the years, which made it possible to commission the watercolour paintings by Johan Reydon (showcased on this website and our flyers), and to acquire a bed step, two plate racks and lamps. We have also received objects, which fit the interior of the house.
The German and English translations have been donated by Compass Translations.
