More cooperation, more social impact
The European Commission Partnership was awarded under the Commission’s Programme for Employment and Social Innovation (EaSI), a programme fostering cooperation with pan-European networks.
The Partnership recognises the role EVPA plays as a European network advocating societal impact through venture philanthropy (VP) and social investment (SI). The Partnership also reinforces the link between the European institutions and VP/SI practitioners.
Under this Partnership with the European Commission, EVPA is undertaking a number of activities aimed at strengthening the European VP/SI sector:
- Supporting the Commission in its outreach activities at European, national and local level
- Reinforcing the capacity of the network’s members
- Voicing the concerns and expectations of organisations facilitating access to finance
- Provide data and conduct research on developments in the sector
