On 23 June 2016, the UK holds a referendum on whether to remain in or leave the European Union (EU). As highlighted in Alliance Extra, the vote is on the minds of British foundations. But what do Europeans think of British philanthropy? Reporting from the European Foundation Centre conference in Amsterdam, Alliance editor Charles Keidan and Communications officer, Holly Steell, went to find out.
