Available both online as e-services and onsite at the EFC’s offices at Philanthropy House in Brussels, the EFC Resource Centre is a hub of information on philanthropy and the myriad areas foundations are involved in.
Going beyond mere data gathering, our resource team harvests intelligence on our membership, their activities and areas of interest and makes this information available to our members upon request.

EFC Virtual Library

The Resource Centre maintains the EFC Virtual Library, powered by IssueLab, which includes over 600 free-to-download publications on philanthropy and foundations from a range of organisations and publishers.

As an EFC member you can send us your publications for inclusion in the library which will also be added to the global IssueLab network where they will be made available to an extended audience, including users of Worldcat, the global catalogue used by tens of thousands of libraries.
