About this grant

Created as a pilot project in 1997, the European Foundation Centre’s (EFC) Community Philanthropy Initiative (CPI) endeavors to promote and strengthen community philanthropy in Europe. Multiyear funding will enable CPI to strengthen existing community philanthropy organizations and facilitate the establishment of new ones; build the capacity of existing national community philanthropy support structures and develop them where needed; increase knowledge and understanding about matters affecting community philanthropy organizations; improve the visibility of the community philanthropy movement; and nurture European-level networking among community philanthropy organizations and between them and other related groups at transatlantic and global levels.
