Two major European philanthropy associations to converge into one united voice for the sector – Philea, Philanthropy Europe Association
EFC European Foundation Center and DAFNE Donors and Foundations Networks in Europe together for Philea, a new platform that will nurture a diverse and inclusive ecosystem of philanthropic organisations and support networks in over 30 countries that work for the common good. It will unite more than 10,000 public-benefit foundations that seek to improve life for people and communities in Europe and around the world.
We wanted to create a new hub for people and organizations who strongly believe in philanthropy as a powerful force for positive change. We can’t tackle pandemics, rising inequality or the climate crisis alone. Philanthropy has a key role in supporting innovation and taking risks. Together, we can mobilize the entire philanthropy ecosystem.
The Adriano Olivetti Foundation has always played an active role in promoting philanthropy in Italy and abroad. From the Hague Club, to the European Foundation Center and now with Philea for 21st century philanthropy.
