About European Foundation Centre (EFC)

The EFC is the platform for and champion of institutional philanthropy – with a focus on Europe, but also with an eye to the global philanthropic landscape. 

With the aim of being the voice of institutional philanthropy in Europe, EFC communicates to stakeholders the value of organised philanthropy to society, to help nurture an environment in which it can flourish. EFC serves as a hub of sector exchange and intelligence, to help our members increase the impact of their added value in society.

With over 25 years of experience and over 250 member organisations, the EFC gives its members access to a wealth of knowledge on the sector and to long-term relationships with philanthropic peers and external actors. Building on relationships and dialogue with policymakers which span several years, we help our members engage with high-level decision-makers. We also partner with a range of actors and catalyse joint projects which tackle many of today’s greatest challenges.
