Philanthropy must be boosted in Europe. New challenges, new tools and new methods are spurring philanthropists and their advisors on to develop innovative initiatives for a better society. Philanthropy is becoming ever more diverse and increasingly accessible, and now forms an integral part of the advantages of our societies. But barriers, threats and areas of improvement still remain.
Several European partners and networks, including the King Baudouin Foundation want to bring together those involved in European philanthropy to discuss philanthropic trends and opportunities in 2017. On May 12th 2017, European philanthropic sector and stakeholders (philanthropists, policy makers, advisors, notaries, asset managers, private bankers, family offices, and NGO and foundation representatives) will gather together and discuss the evolution and the place of philanthropy in Europe and the new challenges philanthropy is facing for the coming years. The event “Boost Philanthropy in Europe” will propose roundtables and inspiring keynote speeches from international guests of honor and from European policy makers to the audience. Registration is open, and more information is available here.
