Policy
A key dimension for the venture philanthropy sector in Europe

Policy is key for the venture philanthropy and social investment sector. Find out here more about EVPA's policy work which aims at promoting a conductive environment for more social impact

EVPA plays a crucial role in promoting effective EU and national  policies that support a well-functioning ecosystem for societal impact. Informing its members about EU policy initiatives and voicing their concerns and expectations is central to EVPA’s policy work, as well as highlighting and sharing national policy initiatives.

European Thought Leadership

EVPA closely monitors and communicates EU developments of relevance to the Venture philanthropy (VP) and social investment (SI) sector. The input of its members is essential to support EVPA and the European institutions in the promotion of a conducive policy environment for its members and the social purpose organisations (SPOs) they support.
