There are many challenges facing European society nowadays.

Real sustainable answers to the biggest, most crucial social problems can be found and applied by starting on the local level, in other words by working bottom up.

Community foundations play a key role in change on the local level – they support self-organizing, local citizens to responding to problems and challenges by leveraging local resources, such as social, human and financial capital.

From our rich experience we know that social and human capital can be mobilised to great ends, but that financial support is essential, both for community philanthropy to thrive in a changing and competitive landscape, and to sustainably address social problems.

Join us! Become a partner and help us build strong and sustainable community philanthropy and communities, capable of taking up global challenges on the local level.
