Building expertise and knowledge since 2010

The EVPA Knowledge Centre (KC) is the hub for knowledge, training and thought leadership on venture philanthropy (VP) and social investment (SI) – in Europe and beyond. We have been gathering data, intelligence and impactful stories from the sector since 2010. To date more than 30 reports have been launched on best practices, sector developments and key players in the VP/SI sector.

Our publications and practical tools cover cutting-edge topics, from how to set-up a VP/SI organisation to delivering non-financial support; from tailoring the financial offer according to the needs of social purpose organisations to how to exit social investments; from measuring and managing impact to how different actors can collaborate together in innovative ways.

All the KC activities aim at helping practitioners improve their VP/SI practices and achieve a greater social impact.

Our training offer consists of community-based learning experiences designed to advance the professionalisation of the sector.
