Philanthropy Advocacy – For a favourable operating environment

If rules and regulations are enacted that restrict the way philanthropic organisations are allowed to operate – at national or EU level, or cross-border – then they cannot realise their full potential in serving the public good. Through the joint DAFNE-EFC Philanthropy Advocacy initiative, we work to ensure that the regulatory operating environment for philanthropy is the best it can be.

About the DAFNE-EFC Philanthropy Advocacy initiative

The DAFNE-EFC Philanthropy Advocacy initiative acts as a monitoring, legal analysis and advocacy hub for European philanthropy. Go to Philanthropy Advocacy for the European Philanthropy Manifesto, knowledge resources, news and more!

The EFC believes fully in cooperating with other philanthropy support organisations to ensure that we are all pulling in the same direction. This exciting joint initiative marks a major step forward on the road to consolidating our collaboration with the wide range of actors in the European philanthropic infrastructure sphere. Stay tuned for further developments!
