To celebrate the European Day of Foundations and Donors 2018, the Indiana University Lilly Family School of Philanthropy in collaboration with the Donors and Foundations Networks in Europe (DAFNE) has released a European edition of the school’s 2018 Global Philanthropy Environment Index.
‘We are pleased to share the key findings of the 2018 Global Philanthropy Environment Index in order to increase understanding of the vital role that philanthropy plays in addressing local and global issues,’ said Una Osili, associate dean for research and international programs at the Indiana University Lilly Family School of Philanthropy. ‘This report reveals that Europe fosters an increasingly wide range of philanthropic environments, and that any philanthropic efforts in this region should also be considered on a country-by-country basis.’
The 2018 Global Philanthropy Environment Index provides information about the philanthropic landscape of 30 European countries. The index measures regulatory, political, and socio-cultural environments through a standard instrument completed by country-based experts.
DAFNE Chair Felix Oldenburg said: ‘At a time of complex and urgent challenges in Europe, it is more important than ever to enhance collaborations across sectors and countries through philanthropy. The report offers unique insight into how countries might work together, and where challenges may arise—knowledge that is essential to maximizing philanthropy’s impact.’
The European Edition of the 2018 Global Philanthropy Environment Index is accessible free of charge on the Indiana University Lilly Family School of Philanthropy’s Global Indices website: bit.ly/GPEIEurope.
