EFC - European Foundation Centre

A European and international perspective

Fondazione Cariplo is a funding member of the European Foundation Centre, the European association whose purpose is to strengthen and spread organized philanthropy in the interest of civil society, in Europe and the world over.

EFC intends to collaborate with and provide support to sustainable, responsible, independent philanthropic initiatives in the new Europe, especially in those areas where the fundamental human right of pooling private capital for the public benefit necessitates support.

The vision of the European Foundation Centre is that of a knowledgeable, inspired, independent philanthropic community committed to seeking innovative solutions to the most important human challenges, at European and global level.
