DAFNE, EFC, EVPA, GSG and NEF have come together to create Unitus Europe – a new European Philanthropy and Social Investing Impact Hub for funders to create effective, cohesive and collaborative responses to COVID-19.
The aim of the joint initiative is to create a space to share ‘information, resources, and good practices to inspire other actors, gaining new insights through peer-learning and identifying opportunities on the demand and supply side’.
According to unituseurope.org, the hub will ‘support and to give guidance to suppliers of funding, such as foundations, social investors and public funders, throughout the survival (6 months) and the revival (18 months) phases related to the COVID-19 crisis, with a focus on trans-national and cross-border activities in Europe, and beyond’. The website also states, ‘this is the opportunity to ensure a collaborative and cohesive response to the crisis, by giving easy access to valuable information resources across Europe and beyond and launching joint initiatives’.
