Review: 28. May 2018
Co-Creating a Single Market for Philanthropy
Three key philanthropic infrastructure organisations – DAFNE, EFC and EVPA – are seeking to make the case for a Single Market for Philanthropy, a common element of their policy agenda. To get the discussion moving in the right direction, the three organisations held a joint, one-day “Philanthropy Scrum” on 28 May 2018 in Brussels, bringing together 150 policymakers, foundations’ representatives and key stakeholders.
