EFC and DAFNE Autumn Assembly

Filiz Bikmen

In an attempt to foster greater collaboration among foundations and donor networks, the European Foundation Centre, in cooperation with DAFNE (Donors and Foundations Networks in Europe, 21 members across Europe collectively serving more than 5,500 donors and foundations), held its first ‘Autumn Assembly’ in Brussels on 7 November.

Bringing together over 150 participants, the Assembly was a ‘mega-panel’ of six consecutive sessions on subjects including accountability and transparency, codes of practice, limited life vs perpetuity, allocation of assets, technology and diversity. As one participant put it, the sessions were just long enough to spark a debate to be pursued later in more in-depth discussions.
