Enlarging the Space for European Philanthropy
DAFNE and EFC embarked on an initiative to explore what are the legal, fiscal and administrative obstacles that restrict the space for philanthropy. Initially this involved consultation with members and then led to the commissioning of a study. Oonagh Breen, Professor of Law at the Sutherland School of Law, University College Dublin, undertook an analysis of the regulatory and political challenges and proposed ways forward in a report published in January 2018. This led to the identification of mitigating actions which included the development of the Philanthropy Advocacy project and collaborative work towards the creation of a Single Market for Philanthropy.
