Interested in environmental funding trends in Europe?

Don’t miss the third edition of the mapping of environmental funding by European foundations. The report builds on earlier reports by the European Foundation Centre, expanding the number of foundations being studied and the total value of environmental grants being coded. The long-term goal remains as set out in earlier editions: to establish as detailed a picture as possible of the state of European independent funding for environmental issues with a view to raising the profile of environmental funders, building understanding of the sector, improving coordination, and providing analysis that informs discussion of effectiveness in environmental grantmaking.
