IN PARTNERSHIP WITH EFC & DAFNE, SPONSORED BY MERCER

The future of philanthropy in Europe

A new paradigm for European philanthropy? Or back to the old ways?

The face of European philanthropy is changing. Funding priorities, strategies and practices are being re-examined in response to wealth inequality, the climate emergency and the Covid pandemic. To meaningfully contribute to Europe’s most pressing issues, philanthropy needs to collaborate with other agents of change. This panel will hear from leading European philanthropists and practitioners who will explain how they’re responding to a new set of challenges.
 
This event is part of Alliance’s 25th anniversary series, exploring what the future of philanthropy holds in six different regions across the world. This webinar is in partnership with EFC and DAFNE and is sponsored by Mercer.
