The European Foundation Centre is an independent membership association of foundations and corporate funders dedicated to promoting organized philanthropy in Europe and internationally. In 2012, the European Foundation Centre carried out a wide range of activities including further developing the European Foundation House, which is scheduled to be completed in late 2013, and organizing an Annual General Assembly and Conference in Belfast in June and an Autumn Assembly in Brussels in November. In 2013, the European Foundation Centre will continue to focus on (1) raising the collective voice of the European philanthropic sector, (2) creating an enabling environment for independent funders, (3) encouraging the professionalization of foundation staff and boards, and (4) increasing the visibility of European foundations. Established in 1989 by seven of Europe's leading foundations, the European Foundation Centre today serves a core membership of over 200 members.
The Mott Foundation, through its Civil Society program, funds nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) working in Central/Eastern Europe and Russia and South Africa. The overall goal of our work in these regions is to develop and strengthen civil society by promoting civic participation in democratic processes at the local, national and regional levels; strengthening philanthropy and the nonprofit sector, and addressing issues related to race and reconciliation and transitional justice.
